Whereas, The Student Council Alliance of the Philippines, as a progressive student councils and student political parties formation, promotes student welfare and continuously fights for students’ rights inside academic institutions;

Whereas, SCAP, as an Alliance that upholds alternative campus politics, believes in the relevance of policy advocacy and the power of legislation as an integral part of concrete and realistic component to reform educational system;

Whereas, SCAP, with other alternative progressive youth organizations, seeks for a law that will firmly defend and reaffirm the rights and welfare of the students;

Whereas, Hon. Risa Hontiveros, an exemplary legislator, is the main author of the Student’s Rights and Welfare Bill also known as the Magna Carta of Students;

Whereas, Hon. Hontiveros is a genuinely pro-youth, pro-student lawmaker, evident in the time when she took the challenge of filing and fighting for the Magna Carta of Students Bill, and as proven significantly in all technical working group (TWG) hearings and committee deliberations to the said bill.

Whereas, SCAP Luzon Regional Assembly, recognizing the need of progressive and transformative leaders of the country, decided unanimously to endorse and support Risa Hontiveros as Senatorial candidate in the 2010 National Elections;

THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED THAT, SCAP as a united Alliance, shall endorse and support the Senatorial candidacy of Hon. Risa Hontiveros and take necessary measures to ensure a seat for the aforementioned candidate.

Who is Risa Hontiveros?

On the basis of Magna Carta of Students Bill, SCAP as an Alliance shall be formally endorsing the candidacy of Hon. Risa Hontiveros for Senator, however, level of engagement of each member council shall be determined by the councils themselves.”

Good day!

I would like to ask your good office about a specific concern on the Elections of the Supreme Student Council at Baliuag University.

We have 5,000 College students approximately, and amongst them, only one student council party arise to run for office. The Office of the Student Affairs of our University would like to ask if there are any provisions in the National Constitution and By-laws for Student Councils appertaining to this issue. That is, could we just proclaim them as the winning party or do we still need an election for formalization? Do we need to wait and encourage other students to organize an opponent party?

Thanks!
