"PUTRAJAYA: The Higher Education Ministry is seeking to establish a national students' parliament as a platform for undergraduates to voice their views. Minister Datuk Seri Mohamed Khaled Nordin however said the body could only be formed if three quarters of the country's universities set up their own student parliaments in campus. "The ministry encourages the concept of student parliament as it is an intellectual infrastructure that would enable students to share and voice their views on university policies. "The body can also provide students the opportunity to cultivate intellectual debates among themselves," he said in his ministry's New Year address at the Putrajaya International Convention Centre yesterday. Khaled said the student parliaments could also help to produce quality and idealistic students with critical thinking skills as they are the future leaders.
