Kung paano pinangangasiwaan ang taunang USC Elections:


1. Tungkulin ng University Student Council (USC)

Kasama ang USC (na karaniwang kinakatawan ng Tagapangulo) sa mga paunang pulong para sa paghahanda ng Halalan. Kasama dito ang pagno-nomina ng mga pangalan para sa bubuo ng Electoral Board at Electoral Tribunal ng eleksyon, ang iskedyul nito at ang guguling badyet sa pagpapatakbo nito.

Tungkulin ng Tagapangulo na maging obhektibo at imparsyal sa buong proseso ng eleksyon mula sa pagsusumite ng mga nominadong pangalan para sa USEB at USET hanggang sa panahon ng pangngampanya.

2. Tungkol sa University Student Electoral Board (USEB)
Pinangangasiwaan ng USEB ang buong proseso ng UPD USC Elections para sa mga posisyon sa lebel ng University Student Council. Kasama dito ang posisyon ng Tagapangulo (Chairperson), Pangalawang Tagapangulo (Vice-Chairperson), mga Konsehal (Councilors) at mga Kinatawan ng Kolehiyo (College Representatives). Ang mga katulad na posisyon sa lebel ng Kolehiyo ay nasa ilalim ng pangangasiwa ng kani-kanilang College Student Electoral Board (CSEB).

May limang (5) tao na bumubuo sa USEB. Ex-officio na Tagapangulo ng Lupon ang Bise-Chanselor para sa Usaping Pangmag-aaral. Kasama niya sa Lupon ang apat (4) pang miyembro: dalawang (2) guro at dalawang (2) estudyante, na opisyal na hinihirang ng Chanselor at pinili mula sa listahan ng mga nominado o inendorsong pangalan ng USC.

3. Tungkol sa University Student Electoral Tribunal (USET)
Pinangangasiwaan ng USET ang pagdinig sa mga kaso ng reklamo pagkatapos ng paghirang sa mga nanalong kandidato sa eleksyon para sa lebel ng University Student Council. Ang pagdinig ng kaso para naman sa lebel ng Kolehiyo ay nasa ilalim ng pangangasiwa ng kani-kanilang College Student Electoral Tribunal (CSET).

May tatlong (3) tao na bumubuo sa USET na pawang mga guro. Pumipili sila ng Tagapangulo mula sa kanilang pangkat. Opisyal rin silang hinihirang ng Chanselor para sa kanilang gawain at pinili mula rin sa listahan ng mga nominado o inendorsong pangalan ng USC.

4. Sanggunian para sa mga usapin sa University Student Council Elections
Mula sa pinakahuling aprubadong Revised University of the Philippines Diliman Student Election Code sumasangguni ang USEB at USET para sa kanilang mga pagpapasya. May ganito ring kodigo ang mga Kolehiyo na sumasaklaw naman sa mga usapin sa lebel ng kani-kanilang Kolehiyo.

5. Tungkol sa gampanin ng Office of Student Activities (OSA) bilang Secretariat
Opisyal na itinatalaga ng Chanselor, sa rekomendasyon ng Bise-Tsanselor para sa Usaping Pangmag-aaral, ang OSA para magsilbing Secretariat ng USEB at USET para sa mga proseso bago, habang at pagkatapos ng eleksyon. Pinangangasiwaan ng OSA ang pakikipag-ugnayan sa mga opisina, mga komunikasyon, at iba pang paghahanda at gawain sa pagpapatakbo ng USC Elections batay sa tagubilin ng USEB.

6. Tungkol sa Halalan software program
Ang software program na “Halalan” ay isang open-source program na dating proyekto ng UP Programming Guild (UnPLUG) at ibinigay nang buo at libre sa Unibersidad noong 2007. Sinimulan itong gamitin para sa College of Engineering Elections noong 2007 at itinalaga namang gamitin para sa USC Elections simula noong 2009.

7. Tungkol sa Halalan/OSA technical volunteers
Dahil sa lawak ng taunang eleksyon, kumukuha ang OSA ng student volunteers upang tumulong dito. Kadalasang iniimbitahan ang mga DOST scholar para sa gawaing ito bagama’t nagpapatawag at binubuksan ng opisina ito para sa lahat ng di-gradwadong estudyanteng interesado. Gaya ng pagpili sa bubuo ng mga miyembro ng USEB at USET, pangunahing kailanganin sa mga volunteer ang pagiging non-partisan upang masiguro ang katapatan ng eleksyon.

Primaryang gawain ng mga volunteer ang pagtulong sa maayos na pagpapatakbo ng eleksyon na may kaugnayan sa teknikal na aspeto nito. Nagtatalaga ng kahit isa sa bawat presinto ang OSA sa araw ng halalan.

8. Mga Opisyal na Partner Organization
Bunsod ng hangaring masiguro ang maksimum na partisipasyon ng mga estudyante sa botohan, nagpapatawag ang USEB ng mga volunteer na student organization upang makatuwang sa pagpapakalat ng impormasyon at pag-engganyo sa kanilang kapwa mag-aaral na bumoto sa pamamagitan ng iba’t ibang proyekto o aktibidad. Gaya ng technical volunteers, pangunahing kailanganin sa student organization ang pagiging non-partisan ng organisasyon. Ang mga napiling organisasyon ay itinatalagang official partner ng Halalan at isinasama sa mga impormasyon at publisidad tungkol dito.

ANNOUNCEMENTS and NEWS

Org. Announcements


Systemic violence remains rampant throughout the world today. All around the world, and most especially in third world countries like the Philippines, such violence persist due to prevailing power structures, and as such lingers at the core of class struggle. These infographics, which tackle such forms of violence like extra-judicial killings, domestic violence, human trafficking, and labor oppression, set the backgrounds and reflect the figures from which we draw the realities. These are all manifestations of how the Philippines, along with other developing countries, should take strides into putting into place legal and structural protections to, at least, inhibit, and at most, eradicate these forms of violence.
At the centre of such discussions is what a particular country’s government is doing in order to combat such atrocities. As its constituents, we look to the state to draft, enact, and enforce public policies for the protection of its peoples. As these graphics would show, there are indeed laws and policies in place. However, over time, such laws begin to be ineffective, leaving out nuances which come with the changing time. That, or as laws improve over time, figures would somehow dip, yet slowly creep back up as the law suits into adjustment. One example is our existing policies against domestic violence. While we reaped victories in the improvement of the law by means of, say, recognizing economic abuses in the Republic Act 9262 in 2004, or in the enactment of the Magna Carta for Women in 2009, progress by numbers were disappointingly short-lived. Reports of domestic abuse in the period following these developments decreased, but slowly increased back as time went on.
Such trends do not speak of the whole picture, only what is reported and so is reflected in numbers, but what it implies is that, while the first line of defense remains legal, such problems persist because it is, as the Philippine Commission on Women states, a “pervasive social problem”.
Indeed, while the law will always be upheld and enforced at every possible juncture, it only helps those who seek its deliverance, those who report their cases. Unfortunately, in more times than the state would want to hope, affected parties don’t report anymore. This may be due to various reasons, but all boiling down on prevailing power structures. Women don’t report their sexual abusers, in fear of the latter fighting back, even if it’s their own husbands, or their own family members. Labor groups are discouraged, even barred from unionizing which should abet their struggle for better workers’ rights, in fear of getting axed from their jobs. People accused, albeit how mildly or imprecisely, of patronizing drugs would rather turn themselves in, in fear that, should they remain on that list longer, they would perish as the war on drugs rolls on its dirty path.
And certainly many more in shrouds, which aren’t to say that any figure drawn and tallied from formal reports should be interpreted as false or inaccurate, but they also shouldn’t be taken on face value, without at least seeing the bigger picture: knowing all factors involved, legal and otherwise. Ultimately, these
graphics still, at their best capacity, reflect the reality in our countrymen, mostly the impoverished, live in. Thus, the steps we take in ensuring that these are eliminated in time are crucial, because they are steps which largely involve us, actors of change, going out of our comforts to immerse in the basic masses. We are expected to see how the law trickles down to the poorest of the poor, and, along the way, it passes through the hands of people in power. This is why all counts of violence are deemed state sanctioned. This is how the truth behind the numbers and statistics are kept.
This is in part saying that militancy is key in enacting change. These infographics help us in our immersion in that it manifests what the law includes, and what it neglects, or how and to whom it is both partial and impartial. Change is enacted both within the doors of the legislators, and under the roof of the most impoverished farmers, workers, wives, children, women, citizen. It is both here and there: here, within the academe where inferences are formed out of historical bases, and there where empathy is cultivated out of living and struggling alongside the basic masses. Once the connection is drawn, it is up to us now, the decisive self, to synthesize, to act, and to struggle, consistently and even endlessly, with these people for the change we seek.
