It was not a healthy way to have such election which the transparency level is equal to opaque.
1st, the candidates. All candidates are those-who-they-call-themselves-the-chosen, which in another word was those ex-MPP (Student Representative Councils) chose. Even in a such small places like here, we do not have much liberality to voice out what we really hope for. Which means we are not be able to determine how our future will look like. For the Student's Affair Department, it is best for You Students to be as tame as the pet where they are best to manipulate with. Incident like in UPM will never ever happened here, as the authorities has 101% control over the student affair. However, a little bit of rejoices is where the study atmosphere over here does not ruined by the opposition power like other varsity did.
2nd, the competition atmosphere.Why on earth is the wasting of almost 3000 thousands pieces of papers for the campaign posters while it is enough for the students to study for at least a year?! It is pointless to make the campaign as peaceful as they want while all the rubbish are flying around the campus like nobody business. Quoted from the authority, ".......A peaceful campaign has been held leading to the election day. Posters of the candidates can be seen everywhere in campus....". It is definitely peaceful. There is no voice of opposition towards the candidates, nor even the speech from the candidates themselves. Neither do the candidates know their opponents are, where the election was really like the election in a certain club which is only difference where they get the agreement from majority of the students. Well, what is the point for election then? To emphasize on your choosing of the students' representatives is the correct choice? Hmm, I wonder how will that be.
Just got the news of the results. It was 2 seats for Chinese. First time in the history I think. It is so surprise that the 2 popular Indian candidates (and the only 2) lost in the voting. KBB sure will be planning for another riot soon. Hope it will be fast!
