Arjay Torno has replaced Andrea Andres as the UP CMC Independent Student-Centered Activism (ISA) candidate for chairperson of the CMC Student Council (CMCSC).
As per the hearing held by the College Student Electoral Board (CSEB) yesterday, Andres’ withdrawal of candidacy and Torno’s appeal were considered valid.
The party filed an appeal for former vice chairperson candidate Torno to replace her on March 20.
According to the CSEB, the replacement of a candidate by another person in the original lineup does not violate election rules.
UP CMC ISA’s appeal to peg Andrea Duldulao as vice chairperson candidate of the CMCSC was denied.
In a statement issued earlier today, UP CMC ISA said that Andres can no longer campaign her candidacy for chairperson due to personal matters.
