Educators Must Toe Line When Politicking - Mahdzir

Last update: 19/01/2018
PUTRAJAYA, Jan 18 (Bernama) -- Education Minister Datuk Seri Mahdzir Khalid has reminded educators involved in politics against breaking the rules binding the civil service.

He said as civil servants, they were bound to certain rules in the civil service, especially on matters which were opposed to government policies.

At a press conference after delivering the ministry's New Year message here today, Mahdzir said although the number was not large, the tendency to show hate politics did not persist.

"Although there are some educators who support opposition political parties, they need to 'fine tune' and put a 'buffer zone' between their career and political ideology so as not to highlight the character of haters and anti-government elements,"he said when commenting on the tendency of educators to go on the opposition stage to publicly disclose what they did not like with regard to the ruling government.

He said the ministry did not intend to disturb the educators to the point of finding it necessary to remove them from service but asked them to act professionally as civil servants.
