On March 22nd 3:00 P.M., at the Lotus Hall, Office of Student Affairs department inquired of the General Student Council about official documents that are needed to approve the passed items at the Students’ General Meeting. Yet, the GSC was disconcerted that they were not given any notification regarding such press conference in advance.
Office of Student Affairs demanded the following issues: return of the enrolled students’ name list used for the Students’ General Meeting, submitting of evidential materials of the change of the minimum number necessary for the meeting and that of the abolition of student regulation regarding executive of the student council personnel qualification standard.
For the first issue, Choi Ho-jin, the section chief of the Office of Student Services, said, “The enrolled students’ name list should have been returned in three days after the Students’ General Meeting according to the privacy protection legislation. However, the former chairperson of the GSC Choi Gwang-baek did not give it back to us.”
In the Students’ General Meeting, the students and the GSC amended that 1/10 of total number of students should gather for the meeting and impeachment; a member of General Representatives Council do not have to be restricted running for the election by the number of semesters, while the one attended maximum eight semesters could be a candidate before the regulation has been changed.
The section chief Choi also mentioned, “The GSC never submitted references about these issues after the Students’ General Meeting. We are wondering whether these items were passed fairly, or not. We would like to ask for the written references about how many students voted for these and the standard of item postulation.”
The vice chairperson the GSC, Jo Seung-woo commented, “In the process of a handover, we did not get anything from the 47th GSC related to the items of the General Students’ Meeting. In addition, there was no advance notification about this inquiry, so we did not even have enough time to find and prepare the documents. This is unilateral. We are very unpleased.”
Then, the GSC expressed their stance regarding the inquiry held on March 25th, saying, “Nothing was discussed in advance, we were informed right before the inquiry. This is an action of ignoring the representatives of whole Donggukians, the General Student Council. The school is saying that the inquiry was for evaluating justification of items of the General Students’ Meeting. However, they are checking the qualification of the GSC in the inquiry. According to the Supreme Court’s precedent, the GSC’s autonomy should be guaranteed, and the school’s intervention is illegal.”
