[UPDATED] Student Alliance for the Advancement of Democratic Rights in UP-College of Mass Communication (STAND UP-CMC) clinched all five top posts and four department representative seats in Thursday’s student council (SC) polls.
Chairperson-elect Almira Abril, who lost last year in a tight vice chairperson race, scored a more than 200-vote lead over UP CMC Interdependent Student Activism (UP CMC ISA) incumbent Broadcast Communication Representative Manuel San Mateo.
Incumbent treasurer Jesse Doctor secured the vice chairperson post after garnering 351 against 252 votes of ISA’s Allison Laxamana, also an incumbent Communication Research representative.
Meanwhile, Alyanna Heramia and Deniel Uezono won as secretary and treasurer, with 352 and 346 votes, respectively. Incumbent Journalism representative Hazel Lobres, on the other hand, will be representing the college to the University Student Council after earning 434 votes.
The local STAND UP party also bagged both of the two Journalism representative posts, and split with ISA in each of the two seats for Film and Communication Research representative. ISA claimed the two Broadcast Communication representative positions.
The college has a 55.5 percent turnout or 636 out of 1,146 registered voters, which is less than last year’s 58.12 percent or 651 out of 1,120 voters.
