Election for the General Students Association (GSA) was held from November 30 to December 1 on Seoul Campus. The turnout was over 50 percent, which was enough to count the votes. Nevertheless, as of this month to the by-election in March of 2012, there is no GSA.

The problem began on the first day of the election when the Election Commission of College of Engineering informed the Central Executive Committee that there was a mistake on the electoral roll. The Election Commission of College of Education also informed of the same mistake on the second day. The Election Commission of both colleges failed to attain the signatures of the voters, which is crucial in making the votes valid. The Central Executive Committee decided to extend the period and restore the signatures of the voters by meeting with the voters one by one.

On the third day, the signatures of 600 students from the College of Engineering and about 280 students from the College of Education were restored. However, the turnout was 1.7 percent below the expected 50 percent, which ended up in a by-election in March. Until then, GSA does not exist in Seoul Campus of HYU. Also, the chairman of Central Executive Committee officially resigned, apologizing for the mishap.

Hanyangians are now concerned. Kang Kyung-roo, the President of College of Humanities and a candidate of this year’s GSA said, “2012 will be a very important year. There are lots of problems to be solved. For example, there are problems of tuition fee and budget. There are many more problems other than these. GSA could have made many achievements from this month until March. But, I am sorry to say that these problems cannot be solved until the GSA is reestablished. I am worried that there is nobody to deliver students’ opinions to school administration.”
