Politics is natural in any democracy. It should neither be stopped nor should it be discouraged. It encourages the society to understand and analyse the societal hierarchy we establish within our own circles. Just recently, we could see how critical students of MMU can be when a few issues regarding the elections (that did not take place) surfaced. Political turmoil on the other hand is another chapter altogether.
Our leaders should understand their roles better. They should keep to their promises of safeguarding student rights and mediating processes between students and the management. Internal issues should be kept at par and even if the dirt gets spilled out of the pan, leaders should know how not to cause uneasiness among students.
What can we students do about this? Truth be told, although protests and parliamentary saboteur is becoming a norm in Malaysia, be mature in understanding the issue. Politicians have their own ideas and agendas to fulfill their political journey’s identity. One faction’s notion can be the complete opposite of the other, although both can have a sense of nobility in their arguments. The decision is yours, you be the judge.
