Create Change

Vote

Explanation

Challenge the undemocratic Executive Council. The student body has not been consulted on the creation of an executive committee to represent societies and their needs. Propose a new, simpler system of actual representation for every society in a round table style, meaning that each society has a vote on each issue. Under the current scheme, one person will represent a whole plethora of societies under newly created categories. This is not workable and adds an unwanted layer of bureaucracy to a system already full of red tape. It is easier and more effective for societies to discuss in open forum, then vote on motions accordingly. The Union Chairperson should also chair these meeting as part of their role in overseeing and ensuring that due process is followed.

Status
