According to Note 2 of the bill, the university students are authorized to set up political formations.
The legislation makes it clear that political activities outside the university campus should be conducted in line with national law and public regulations.
Note 3 of the bill clarifies the composition of the constituent council of the political formations which should have at least five members who are required to deliver a charter, title of the formation and list of the founders to the Supervisory Board of the university and apply for a license.
The founding members should not have a criminal record which may bring about restrictions for them.
"The charter of the formation should not contradict the Constitution and the law in effect in the country," the legislation said.
The formation should bear responsibility for holding lectures, roundtable discussions or open debate and vice-chancellor of the university in charge of students affairs should be notified ahead of such meetings.
"The students formations should obtain permission from Supervisory Board of the University for any gathering, rally, in the campus and ensure that such activities do not disrupt educational activities."
Note five of the legislation requires the universities to earmark fund for students' formations.

The Supervisory Board has three months to examine application and charter of the students' formation and grant license for them.
The Supervisory Board will monitor the performance of the students formations.
