Alumni election urged

Alumni of the Negros Oriental State University are calling for an election of a new set of officers this year as the three-year term of the current president and other officers is about to end.

Marlon Padayhag, an alumnus of NORSU, said yesterday that he has written Nilo Sayson, president of the Federation of NORSU Alumni, and who sits as member of the Board of Regents, requesting that an election be held soon.

The alumni federation of NORSU is scheduled to hold its homecoming today, in line with the university’s 109th Founder’s Day anniversary celebration.

Padayhag, who was former president of the Supreme Student Government and a trustee of the then Central Visayas Polytechnic College before the school was converted as a state university, said that Sayson’s term is to end today but there is no word about an election for a new set of officers.

As of this writing, Padayhag said he has not received any official communication in response to his letter-request.

He said the NORSU alumni federation president’s term ought to be only one year but when Sayson was elected in 2013, he based his three-year term on the old Constitution and By-laws of the federation.

Padayhag said the Constitution and By-laws that was registered with the Securities and Exchange Commission states that alumni federation officers only get elected to a one-year term rather than three years, as in the case of Sayson.

Sayson, who is a member of the Provincial Board of Negros Oriental, could not be reached through his mobile phone for comment.*JFP
