Campus Election : Pro-M vs. Pro-A

Students are future leaders and they should lead the way to a better Malaysia. Academics should be there to support them and provide intellectual guidances. Campus elections are the first taste of democratic processes for most youths.

Only a selected few are able to enjoy such experiences where the campaigning and promotion of manifestos are almost similar to the real political elections. They are supposed to elect the student governments. But when the administration try to overplay their bias EC roles then the experiences will be bad.

Egypt's Revolution

It looks like the Arab countries are experiencing some kind of revolution.

The Egyptian uprising broke out last week due to public frustration with corruption, oppression and economic hardship under Hosni Mubarak’s 30-years rule.

It has been reported that at least 140 protesters have been killed in demonstrations across the country especially after pro-Mubarak supporters opened fire on protesters camped in Cairo’s Tahrir Square.

The protests are part of the regional uprising inspired by the popular revolt in Tunisia which overthrew President Zine al-Abidine Ben Ali last month. The fall of the Tunisian regime, riots on the streets of Pakistan, Morocco and now Egypt are all fundamentally related to unfair distribution of wealth and income, spiking food and commodity prices and a staggering rise in unemployment.
