Anti-establishment Pro-Mahasiswa edges ahead of Pro-Aspirasi in UM polls

KUALA LUMPUR, Sept 25 — The anti-establishment Pro-Mahasiswa has edged ahead of Pro-Aspirasi by five seats in campus polls at Universiti Malaya (UM) by winning 22 of the 43 seats contested.

Pro-Aspirasi won 17 seats while Independent candidates obtained two seats, said UM vice-chancellor Tan Sri Dr Ghauth Jasmon.

He said Pro-Mahasiswa won six general seats and 16 faculty seats, Pengerak Mahasiswa three general seats and 14 faculty seats and Independents two faculty seats.

Ghauth said nine general seats and 34 faculty seats were contested in this year’s campus polls.
He would announce the official results on Thursday.

Meanwhile, International Islamic University Malaysia’s (IIUM) campus election had to be postponed due to technical glitches in its e-pengundian system.

IIUM deputy rector of student affairs Datuk Mizan Hitam said to ensure fair and transparent election results, he would propose to the senate to hold another round polls manually.

He said IIUM students would go to the polls again in one week’s time.

Thirty-one seats will be up for grabs, namely 18 at the Gombak campus and 13 at the Kuantan campus. — Bernama
