Teachers and politics: Put it in writing, without hidden conditions, says NUTP

PETALING JAYA: Allowing teachers to actively participate in politics must come without any hidden conditions, says the National Union of Teaching Profession ( NUTP ).

“NUTP hopes that the new circular on this, when issued, does not contain any hidden conditions that will result in problems for teachers who will be active in politics,” Wang said in a statement issued by NUTP on Saturday (Jan 22).He said that teachers welcomed Prime Minister Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob's announcement in Kota Baru, that all teachers under the Education Ministry nationwide would be allowed to get involved in politics, with immediate effect.

He added that a circular would be issued immediately.Wang said that an earlier circular issued by the Education Ministry in 2010 allowed teachers under Grade DG41 and 48 to participate in politics, with consent from the ministry’s secretary-general.However, he said this was withdrawn at the end of 2021 following a directive issued by the ministry’s secretary-general.
