The main objective of the Majlis Perundingan Pelajar Kebangsaan (MPPK) is to discuss issues of national students. International Islamic University Malaysia (IIUM) was represented by four SRC excos, most notably Muhammad Firwan Norliza (President), Mohd Ayob Aklil (Vice President 1), Hidayatul Karimah Mahyuddin (Secretary General) and Muhammad Syazwan Suhaimi (Treasurer). Group 5 was lead by the President of the SRC IIUM proposed by the bro. Syahir (UM) and supported by the bro. Hadi (UMK).
Group 5 which included a total of 37 MPP nationwide and a proposed 14 recommendations agreed with the "Voice of Students at Level Delegation of the Parliament". Before the five present discussion paper, the President suggested that the SRC IIUM extended discussion for the time given by the management is very short while to discuss issues and proposals that involve national issue and requires discussion and debate as well. SRC IIUM president also urged the management to present the issues that were raised at the last MPPK and submit the proposals are still pending proposals that have been approved. In addition, SRC IIUM President asked that the previous proposals have been approved to be implemented properly. This is because, the average motion tabled by a group of up to four proposals that are quite similar and consequential (after getting feedback from former MPP 2008/2009). Among them is the issue of student cards and discounts to transport problems and issues of social and moral development in rural areas (Sabah and Sarawak).
There are also issues a very interesting debate. Among them are the discount airfares and issues of national defense. Group 5 and 6 also agree to proposed "Student representatives in Parliament" (group 6 suggest that the Senator used the term) in order to solve the problems arise. This is to ensure voice of the student's to be heard, recognized the role of students and student issues resolved in a way that student-oriented. Although this motion requires a deeply detailed, but it is a good beginning towards an independent student. Any suggestions, ideas or comments can be raised on this entry. Thank you from me.
