UM Elections

A lot can be said about the recent UM elections but I found it interesting that the Pro-Mahasiswa made a sweep and now owns UM student politics. It is generally accepted that these anti-establishment student representatives are opposition-aligned and may even get tacit approval from certain politicians.

I found this interesting because campus elections serve as an indicator of future voting trends. One must remember that by the time these students graduate from university, they would already be qualified to vote as long as they signed up as one.

It is generally accepted that the younger generation are opposition aligned and anti-establishment. It could be an extension of teen rebellion on the one hand. So, it will be interesting to see how things go in the other universities.

Interesting indeed.
