Starting from November 13th, Andre (Senior, Political Science and Diplomacy Major) went into an indefinite sit-in demonstration at the lighting tower of Manhae Square, requesting for the direct president election system and opposing reappointment of the current President Han Tae-sik (Bogwang).
For several years, numerous actions of Donggukians have been made to ask for the direct election system. However, nothing has changed. Soon, it will be the end of the President Han Tae-sik’s term, which means there will be an election for the new President of Dongguk University.
On November 19th, the Chairperson of the General Student Council from Hongik University, Yonsei University, Seoul National University, and Hanshin University gathered at Dongguk University and held a press conference to show a sense of solidarity. Andre said, “I will continuously struggle to inform the president and the board of the seriousness of this situation, and firmly demand for the direct presidential election.” He added, “On top of this, I hope Donggukians also understand that this is the matter to solve as ‘us.’ We must think and resolve this issue together.”
