Tanjung Malik, Dec 8 – Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaqoub said students can criticize the government, but they should not let their emotions influence their actions.

Instead, the Prime Minister said that students should express their opinions, especially regarding government policies, based on facts and solid evidence.

“When the student leaders came to see me, one of the questions they asked was whether or not they could criticize the government, and I told them they could, which is not wrong.

But what is important is that every critical statement must be accompanied by facts and that they are not merely emotional expressions. This is important because they represent the group of people we are allowed to vote and elect the next leaders of the country,” he said after launching Keluarga [email protected] An initiative at Universiti Pendidikan Sultan Idris is here today.

The meeting was attended by Minister of Higher Education Datuk Seri Norini Ahmed and Perak Muntry Besar Datuk Seri Sarani Muhammad.

Ismail Sabry said the government has also recognized the roles of youth in the country by agreeing to implement Undi18 (the 18-year voting age) despite disagreements from some quarters.

“Many are still skeptical of the government’s decision on this issue, as 18-year-olds are still considered too young and naive to decide who should lead the country.

“However, the government is confident in their ability and wants them to decide who is worthy of becoming their leader,” he said.

As such, the prime minister said, from January 1, all those who have reached the age of 18 will be automatically registered as voters in forming the government and in deciding the future of the country.

At the event, Ismail Sabri also announced the establishment of UPSI’s Keluarga Malaysia Research and Education Center to lead research activities and promote the Keluarga Malaysia concept. – program
