‘AP­PLY TO EN­TER SCHOOLS’

The Sun (Malaysia) - - NEWS WITHOUT BORDERS -

KUALA LUMPUR: Op­po­si­tion MPs and state rep­re­sen­ta­tives must get per­mis­sion from state ed­u­ca­tion de­part­ments to en­ter govern­ment schools for any of­fi­cial events, Ed­u­ca­tion Min­is­ter Mas­zlee Ma­lik said yes­ter­day. This is a change from the pre­vi­ous Barisan Na­sional ad­min­is­tra­tion as Op­po­si­tion lead­ers were to­tally barred from schools, he added. “They can’t cam­paign, bring party flags and so on,” Mas­zlee said, adding that they must be seen as rep­re­sen­ta­tives of the peo­ple rather than their par­ties. “In the new Malaysia, we are al­low­ing it as long as they fol­low pro­ce­dures,” he said.
