INDUSTRY.co.id - Karawang - Minister of Research, Technology and Higher Education (Menristekdikti) Mohamad Nasir said the campus is not an arena for politics ahead of the political year in Indonesia in the context of the upcoming general elections, but a place to improve the quality of education and students.

"Campus is a place to develop knowledge. Practical politics do not enter campus," Minister Nasir said in Karawang, West Java, Monday (3/9/2018)

Nasir said that for state universities that carry out political activities on behalf of the campus, sanctions will be given, including the dismissal of the chancellor if necessary.

"The Chancellor will get an SP (warning letter). If it has SP 1, SP 2, SP 3, but it doesn't respond, it's dismissed," he said.

He also told Private College Coordination to oversee private universities to be free from political practice.

Minister Natsir said the campus was a place to improve the quality of education and the quality of students, not for politics.

According to him, political activities can disrupt the educational process in the campus environment amid various choices. Therefore, there should be no parties who use the campus to engage in politics within the education environment.

"If you want to do politics outside campus, not on campus, don't use it on behalf of the campus for politics," he said.
