Student Council Elections
On March 4, UP students will exercise their right of suffrage and vote for the next set of officers who will compose the University Student Council — the “mother” of all college student councils.
Three parties will go head-to-head on a match for the officership: ALYANSA, KAISA and STAND-UP. For chairperson, Third Bagro (ALYANSA), Steph Tan (KAISA) and Jerrie Abella (STAND-UP) and for vice-chairperson, Marian Panganiban (ALYANSA), Titus Tan (KAISA) and Airah Cadiogan (STAND-UP).
At the same time, college student councils will also hold their elections. On the Engineering Student Council, four candidates are vying for council seats as Computer Science Representatives (from party ARISE):
- Izel de Ramos
- Ino Mantaring
- Kevinsky Dy
- Jase Tiojanco
For a detailed profile of the candidates, refer to Issue No. 25 of the Philippine Collegian (disclaimer: Jerrie Abella, albeit “on-leave”, is the editor-in-chief).
Exercise your right to vote! On March 4, head out to your respective college polling centers and vote-vote-vote!
