Student activists continue to pressure Education Minister Dr Maszlee Malik to relinquish his role as International Islamic University Malaysia (IIUM) president.

Gabungan Pembebasan Akademik IPT (GPA-IPT) president Asheeq Ali Sethi Alivi, who was one of the students arrested for protesting at the Education Ministry in Putrajaya recently, said the activists are firm on their stance for universities to have full autonomy and are free from political interference.

Varsity student body Persatuan Belia Harmoni president Ahmad Taqiyuddin Shahriman said roadshows will be conducted to educate students and society about political appointments and university autonomy.
