Empowerment of Youth Political Rights and Involvement
Lew Guan Xi
1) Political literacy related topics should be added into the education system, particularly into the history subject. Rather than only teaching the students on the past events and their lessons and values, teachers should also compare the past events to current situation in Malaysia to cultivate students’ political knowledge since young.
2) Election offences act to specify the age proportion of each political party when they are selecting candidates. For example, 30% aged between 21 to 40, 30% aged between 41 to 60, and 40% aged 61 and above. It is to move towards a more balanced age proportion in the political landscape.
3) The Undi18 Bill should be implemented as soon as possible to allow legal protection on youth political rights.
I hereby urge all the youths to start advocating for a youthful political landscape and start learning and involving yourselves in politics for a better future of the country.
Revival of Students' Autonomy

1. AUKU should be abolished completely and replace it with a whole new Act. During PH era, a working group aiming to abolish AUKU was established and a Higher Education Act was drafted, and this plan should be continued.
2. Preserve academic freedom of students.
