The government has no plans to amend the Universities and University Colleges Act 1971 (UUCA) because the provisions of existing laws are sufficient to address issues such as the intrusion at Universiti Malaya (UM).
Deputy Prime Minister Muhyiddin Yassin said the issue could be handled by the UM administrastion without the need for additions or amendments to the UUCA.

About 300 youths, including university students, intruded into UM on Monday to attend a talk by opposition leader Anwar Ibrahim.
