UNAIR NEWS – Universitas Airlangga (UNAIR) students must be selective in choosing a leader, especially in terms of the desired criteria. The criteria become a benchmark used in the selection of leaders, one example is the election of Head and Deputy of 2019 UNAIR Student Executive Board (BEM). It was stated by Shyndy as Head of Student Legislative Board (BLM) FPK UNAIR on Thursday, March 21, 2019.
The criteria for Head and Deputy of 2019 BEM UNAIR Candidates was one of the main topics of discussion of UNAIR Faculty of Fisheries and Marine (FPK) Aspiration Screening on that day. Shyndy added, the topic was aimed at capturing the aspiration of FPK students regarding the figure of Head of BEM they wanted to build FPK UNAIR.
“So, this criteria is a benchmark used in MPM later to choose which candidate pairs are appropriate with the criteria desired by FPK,” Shyndy explained.
The MPM meeting, continued Shyndy, is usually done for the election of university’s BEM leadership. The election is usually conducted through voting session, but in UNAIR it is done through consensus meeting from MPM. MPM consists of two delegates from Student Legislative Council (DLM) of each faculty and one Head of Faculty BEM, Head secretary of Communication Forum, added Shyndy.
Although the election of Head and Deputy of BEM UNAIR was carried out directly by MPM, FPK held a Student Aspiration Screening on Thursday night. This is done to bridge and form a collaboration between DLM and BLM to unite the voices and criteria expected by entire FPK community.
Shyndy also explained that Student Aspiration Screening activity was always conducted at each faculty legislative board. For this year the activity was carried out as a collaboration between DLM and BLM FPK.
This Student Aspiration Screening activity will help the DLM and BLM representatives who will attend the MPM session on Friday, March 22, 2019. It was stated by Rafi Adi as a member of FPK UNAIR’s DLM.
“We cannot decide with only our own decision. We are chosen by you, and we must bring your voice, “said Rafi Adi. Rafi also said that each student has a different perspective.
For this reason, through the Student Aspiration Screening, at least the criteria desired by all UNAIR students is achieved.
In the end of the event, there were six criteria proposed by Student Aspiration Screening on Thursday, morality, capable of maintaining commitment, capable of branding the faculty, comprehensive, neutral, and having a good narrative to advance UNAIR.
“We must have one voice. Why? The criteria we want are shared criteria. We have our own views, and try to get one voice. We are here for the common interest not for the interests of the group, “stressed Akbar as Head of 2019 BEM FPK UNAIR while giving the final statement in the end of the event. (*)
