PETALING JAYA: Pengerang MP and former deputy speaker Azalina Othman Said has denied any involvement with the appointment of one of her former officers to the board of directors of Universiti Malaya (UM).

A statement issued by her office today said Azalina had no prior knowledge of 26-year-old Danesh Raj’s appointment.

This follows speculation on social media surrounding Danesh’s political links to Azalina, with a PKR Youth member claiming that he was one of her officers.





Azalina’s office denied reports that Danesh was a special officer, saying he was actually a social media officer handling her social media accounts.

“Aside from that, the statement by the higher education minister also stated that Danesh’s appointment was the decision of the higher education ministry, which had wanted to see contributions of youth in organisational leadership at the national level, especially in public universities,” the statement said.

It added that Azalina welcomed his appointment, which was made “without any interference”, and based on his qualifications, capabilities and potential as a graduate and an alumnus of Universiti Malaya. It has been reported that Danesh has a performing arts degree from the university.

“Based on the spirit of togetherness and ‘Keluarga Malaysia’, the time has come for the youths out there to be given more trust and recognition with no consideration to their background or ideology.”

Recently, Malaysiakini reported a social media row on Twitter over Danesh’s appointment to the UM board of directors.





PKR Youth election director and former student activist Fahmi Zainol had criticised the appointment, linking Danesh to Azalina.
