   By-election for the General Student Association (GSA) will be held on the Seoul Campus. The by-election will be held at the end of March due to the lack of turnout.
During the first election period, the percentage of people who voted was only about 42 percent. Therefore, the candidates did not gain a majority of the campus vote. Candidates should attain a majority vote because candidates need to be representatives of the student body and their departments. So, the Election Commission for Hanyang University decided to extend the period of the vote. With one day extension, the turnout increased to around 48 percent. But it still ended up below 50 percent of the vote. Finally, the by-election was decided as a solution.
"For two years, HYU had a by-election for the GSA. I was sorry that by-elections were held successively. There are many reasons why the turnout has decreased. Firstly, students had less concern about their vote than before. And the officers of the GSA had problems in that the GSA did not make students feel the real necessity of the GSA. It is also a concern that students ran for an uncontested election,"said Jung Kyung-jun, a chair man of the Central Executive Committee.
"I am sorry for students that by-election is to be held. By-election led to introspection within General Female Student Association. I am worried about next election. Election is not only duty but also opportunity of taking part in school activities. I hope that Hanyangians give candidates instituting GSA in new semester. We also work harder than before GSA existed. We will try not to dissapoint students. I hope Hanyangians to vote in by-election,"said Jeong Yeong-eun, a President of General Female Student Association.
