Pro-Mahasiswa Camp Claims Victory In UM Campus Elections

in Latest

Universiti Malaya (UM)’s Pro-Mahasiswa camp has won a huge majority in the recently-concluded campus elections.

Pro-Mahasiswa, which is perceived to be anti-establishment, won 21 out of the 40 seats contested, edging out its rival pro-establishment group, Penggerak Mahasiswa, which bagged 16 seats.

The remaining three seats were won by independent candidates.

UM vice-chancellor Datuk Dr Mohd Amin Jalaludin, who announced the campus election results here yesterday, reminded the winning candidates to remain united “for the sake of the university”.

“As a student council, your job is to represent the students in improving the university. Remember that UM is one,” he said.

Although 11,895 degree students were eligible to vote, only 8,206 students (68.9%) cast their e-votes at 18 locations across the university.

This is the fifth time the university has conducted its campus elections through an e-voting system and the third year where the nominations, objections and appeals were also done online.

Results of the UM campus polls are unofficial as it is subject to a 24-hour objection period and a further 24-hour appeal period.

The final results will only be known tomorrow.MYNEWSHUB
