If you’re interested, another round of self-important bloviating is set to begin in the Student Union. Once again, someone apparently violated some extraordinarily important bylaw, thereby throwing the entire University into chaos, and it’s up to those heroic souls at the Union Judiciary to restore order and sanity to a world gone mad.
Here is the text of the complaint filed with the UJ:
Petitioner Name: Marla Merchut & Nipun Marwaha
Party against whom the case is being brought: Supreetha Gubbala, Elections Commission
Complaint: According to the ideals governing the ideas of a fair election all prospective candidates are required to sign-up prior to the meeting and then come to the mandatory candidate meeting and sign the campaign agreement. And have a clear and present intention to run prior to the meeting.
Ms. Gubbala did all of these well after the fact. She decided to run the day after the election had already begun after the idea was brought up to her. In this case a person has to be a write in candidate. And is not allowed to use any union resources for campaigning
Ms. Gubbala was wrongly placed as a regular candidate.
We are suing/requesting mediation to rectify this issue.
I’m beginning to think I.P. should stop reporting on this type of trivial Union nonsense. How do the rest of you feel? I’m happy to bring you these bits of news if you feel that they improve your life. But I suspect that this story matters to very few of you, and that you share my belief that we’d be better off pretending the Union didn’t exist.
