THE FACULTY of Arts and Letters (AB) Commission on Elections (Comelec) and The Flame on Monday launched a voters’ education campaign to raise awareness and involvement in the Artlet community as the local student council election nears.
Both parties signed a memorandum of agreement for the conduct of #ABHalalan: Voters’ Education Campaign and Special Coverage which aims to help Artlets make informed choices in electing the next set of Arts and Letters Student Council (ABSC) officers.
The education campaign also aims to educate students about the importance of the upcoming elections to the future of student leadership in the Faculty.
#ABHalalan will deliver informative and extensive coverage to all ABSC election-related activities.
“The reason for the partnership between the Flame and our organization is to have a more comprehensive and intensive information dissemination for the upcoming local student council elections, as well as to raise more awareness to the Artlet community,” AB Comelec Chairperson Kristoffer Dela Cruz said. “Through this partnership, the objective of both organizations in [their] roles in the upcoming LSC elections will be met.”
The filing of certificates of candidacy will be held tomorrow at the AB Lobby from 1 to 4:30 pm, while the announcement of candidates eligible to run for office will be on April 9.
The campaign period for the local polls will be from April 12 to 18, while the election period for both ABSC and Central Student Council will be held from April 20 to 22.
Winners will be proclaimed on April 22. F KIMVIRLY P. ZAYAT
