yes, i totally agree with Diesel's point of view. As a scholar, we are in the state of ambiguity. Since we are fund by the government we cannot be involve in any other politic party besides "XX"... you know which party i mean. Therefore, it is true that there is the freedom to vote in our country? i doubt it. Not that i am an anti-government activist, but i am just stating the fact. There is no neutrality in our electoral system. Well, the most obvious evident is the news on mass media. It seems like every news on any channel is biased to one party. i still can recall the moment when they announced the result yesterday. The commentators look so happy when they announced that "XX" party has regained Terrenganu. On the contrary, the jubilant expression faded from their faces when they announced that "Lim XX" won the seat at Ipoh. So, where is the neutrality in the electoral system. Unlike the US's citizens, Malaysian do not analysis the situation after the election. What they concern is only the result and nothing else. So, is this a fair competition for all parties?[/quote]
Just wondering ... is there any student political association in US/UK or any other countries that you are in now?
It is stated that we cant join any political activities in the agreement that we have signed (for JPA scholar) BUT Embassey seems to allow or better to said encourage students to join KUJ(Kesatuan UMNO Jepun)...
