STAND UP secures 10 of 18 Arki SC posts
■ John Kenneth Zapata
The Student Alliance for the Advancement of Democratic Rights in UP (STAND UP) clinched 10 of the 18 posts in the College of Architecture Student Council (Arki SC), according to the final poll results on April 7.
Unopposed candidates Bethany Pascua and Kristine Rayco of STAND UP won as Vice Chair for Internal and External Affairs, respectively. Five bets of the same party secured councilor posts: Lee Alfonso Apostol, Norman Hamto, Alyssa Rose Napoles, Cathleen Orodono, and Ludivico Diestro.
Jarelle Gabriel Abario and Carl Jason Teodosio will also serve as 3rd year batch reps, with Cristine Joy Bonula as 5th year rep.
Meanwhile, indie bets got eight posts, with Florendo Balanag as the new chair garnering 249 votes against Denver Jett Fajanilan of STAND UP with 91 votes. Another indie candidate will serve as the Arki Rep to the University Student Council, with Castro Noel Ingersol securing 210 votes over STAND UP bet Richard Pagaduan who got 138 votes.
Two indies clinched councilors posts, including Marian Joyce Dacquel and Carlos Miguel Lao. Marissa Iness Ragaza will serve next year as 2nd Batch Rep.
Sole candidates Kristen Lois Katigbak and Therese Villa-Real are the new Landscape Architecture (LA) Councilors, with Katrina Beatriz Gonzales as the LA Representative.
No special elections are being planned for the vacant 4th year Batch Representative positions, but there will be consultations with the incoming Arki SC after Holy Week to resolve the matter, said College Secretary Professor Dolores Madrid.
This year’s voter turnout is 55.65 percent, 1.65 percent higher than last year’s 54 percent. A total of 26 manual votes were added to the final tally last April 7 due to the unaccounted 5th year voters from the student list during the online voting. ■
