The government decided to allow teachers and staff of the Training Institute of the Community Development Department (KEMAS) to be involved in politics and the directive will take effect immediately.

As quoted by Sinar, the Prime Minister, Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob said, before this, there was a circular that restricted teachers from politics and many educators were warned and action was taken. He elaborated,

“I have already brought this issue to the cabinet and the cabinet has decided that we permit political teachers to respect the spirit of democracy. If the circular has not been issued yet, I hope the Ministry of Education will act immediately so that no more pressure is placed on these teachers.”

Commenting further, Ismail Sabri said, the political permission was also given to Kemas staff who had previously been restricted. Before this, they were allowed to be political like ordinary people, but during the government administration led by Pakatan Harapan (PH), they were not allowed to be political.

KEMAS staff are also given this permission but they are still subject to the rules of their respective departments. Ismail Sabri said, if they are political until they leave their duties, they can face disciplinary action by their respective departments.
