The Students’ Representative Council Election 2014/2015 (SRC Election 14/15) is organised by the Student Affairs & Development Divisions (STADD) in collaboration with the Office of Deputy Rector (Students Affairs).

STADD’s Director, Dr. Noor Azlan B. Mohd Noor,  has been appointed Chairman of the Election Commission.

The seat of constituency is open to all undergraduates both locals and internationals. Only students who fulfilled the qualification are eligible to be nominated as candidates in the SRC Election.

Among the conditions are that candidates must obtain CGPA above 2.70 and are good in moral characters as well as those who have leadership qualities that serve as a good example to others.

On 15 November, during the Nomination Day, the finalist candidates for each Kulliyyah was announced by the Chairman of the Election Commission.

In order to be shortlisted candidates, students are required to attend the English proficiency session (public speaking) organised by the English Proficiency Committee which was held on 11 November.
