Resolution to Define and Appoint the Sanggunian Coordinator


A resolution to create the position of the Sanggunian Coordinator, to define the roles of the
Sanggunian Coordinator and to appoint a Sanggunian Coordinator to ensure the fulfillment of the
administrative and representative functions of the institution.
Authored by:
Therese Francesca A. Bonifacio, 4th Year SOSE Central Board Representative
Franco Dominic D.G. Quilatan, 3rd Year SOH Central Board Representative
Whereas, the Sanggunian is founded on the principles of representation, participatory democracy,
accountability, decentralization, consultation, and efficient and effective service towards the holistic
formation of the Atenean;1
Whereas, last February 26, 2015, Ateneo COMELEC released the official results of the 2015
Sanggunian General Elections to the Loyola Schools student body;2
Whereas, the position of president was unable to reach the quota of 3255 due to receiving only
3128 undergraduate student votes3 resulting to a failure of elections and consequently, a vacancy in
the position of the President;
Whereas, the Sanggunian recognizes that certain presidential functions, such as being the official
spokesperson of the Sanggunian at any function, meeting, or assembly and to preside over the
meetings of the Central Board, are necessary for the continued functioning of the institution;4
Whereas, the President is the official spokesperson of the student body in the following Loyola
School committees: School Council, School Forum, and Administrative Council;
Whereas, the Sanggunian recognizes that all the elected Central Board representatives are first time
Central Board members and have no experience in presiding over Sanggunian meetings as well as
performing representative functions required in the aforementioned Loyola Schools Committees;
Whereas, Luis Miguel N. Del Rosario, SOSE Chairperson for SY 2015-2016, is one of the highestranking officers in the Sanggunian, with the most experience in Sanggunian affairs among the
current set of elected officers;
