On September 19, the first conference discussing Korea University (KU) Presidential Election System with all units of KU was held in the Inchon Memorial Hall at 3:00 P.M. Simultaneously, a stage rally was held in front of the same hall to effectively display opinions of students regarding the current election system. The stage rally, which was planned to start at 2:30 P.M. began near 3:00 P.M.

The Korea University Student Union (KUSU) ABLE and Yiman-Chongchong task force (TF) team have held various events including marches, relay picketing, and KUSU President’s hunger strike for the past few months. Their efforts were not without results, in that they were able to provide a site where students can discuss the election system with the faculty senate, alumni association and the corporate body of KU for the first time. Yoon Jung-In (’15, Political Science and International Relations), the President of the College of Political Science and Economics stated that “such result is the product of many people’s struggle” and showed her hope that this conference would act as the first step in creating a school students want.
Unfortunately, the first conference ended with unsatisfactory results as the participants only repeated that they cannot give any definite response on students’ request proposal. Thereby, a second conference is planned to be held on September 28. KUSU insisted that each unit finalize its stance on convoking the Committee for Revising Regulations of Presidential Elections in KU and received their promise to do so. Furthermore, it was also guaranteed that presidential election will proceed by the newly revised regulations, starting from this year.
