SANGGUNIAN NG MGA MAG-AARAL NG MGA PAARALANG LOYOLA NG ATENEO DE MANILA

STUDENT JUDICIAL COURT

Date of Promulgation :

July 16, 2016

RESOLUTION

The 2016 Constitution of the Undergraduate Students of the Ateneo De Manila

Loyola Schools was ratified in a plebiscite in School Year 2015-2016. Article XV, Section 1.1

states that “All incumbent and elected members of the Sanggunian shall remain in office

until after the newly-elected set of Sanggunian officers shall have taken their oaths of office”

and comprise the Transitory Government which shall serve as the Sanggunian.

The Transitory Government has positions, departments, and committees which must be

filled in order to have a functioning Sanggunian. These positions and departments

are not covered by Article XV, Section 1.1 as these positions and departments either

do not have incumbent officials or are newly-established for the purpose of the

Transitory Government. Article IX, Section 1.2.3 of The 2016 Constitution of the

Undergraduate Students of the Ateneo De Manila Loyola Schools empowers the

Student Judicial Court to “Review, approve and / or reject decisions of appointments

made by any members of the Sanggunian”.

The Transitory Government has been functioning as the Sanggunian since the end

of the Second Semester of School Year 2015-2016 sans the formality of an appointment

from this Court.

The Transitory Government has submitted to this Court their proposed structure,

justification for the created positions, departments, and committees, job descriptions of

these positions, departments, and committees, and the process for nomination undertaken

by the former in ensuring that competent students have been appointed to the positions.

After a perusal of the afore-cited proposed structure, this Court finds the submitted

documents for its perusal as meritorious and of no adverse consequence to the student

body.

This Court therefore approves :

a) the creation of the positions Sanggunian Coordinator, Sanggunian Executive Secretary, School of Humanities Liaison, School of Management Liaison, School of Science and Engineering Liaison, and School of Social Sciences Liaison to serve as part of the Transitory Government ;

b) the creation of the Department of Communications, Department of Finance, Department of Formation, and the Department of the Secretariat to serve as part of the Transitory Government ;

c) the creation of the Committee on Sociopolitical Affairs and the Committee on Student Concerns to serve as part of the Transitory Government ;

d) the retention of the Department of External Affairs and the Department of Student Welfare and Services to serve as part of the Transitory Government ;

This Court recognizes the fact that the appointments made were conducted by the Sanggunian Central Board of School Year 2015-2016 and as such, relies on their discretion on having scrutinized the competencies of every current officer of the Sanggunian down to the very last Block Representative, Course Representative, and Department Member, and as such has screened the nominees and eventual appointees.

This Court however recognizes the fact that the subsequent appointments not made by the Sanggunian Central Board of School Year 2015-2016 were made by the presumptive officers of the Transitory Government and as such, relies on their discretion on having scrutinized the competencies of every current officer of the Sanggunian down to the very last Block Representative, Course Representative, and Department Member, and as such has screened the nominees and eventual appointees. Given this responsibility, the Court earnestly hopes that all means were exhausted in appointing officers into the Transitory Government from the existing pool of Sanggunian Officers, and that appointees who were not a part of the Sanggunian for the previous school year have proved to be an asset to the building of the new Sanggunian.

This Court recognizes that the Department of External Affairs and the Department of Student Welfare and Services are not newly created departments. These departments are existing departments of the Sanggunian in the previous school years. As such,

Telephone Number: 426 6001 loc. 5444 Email Address: sjcadmu@gmail.com

both departments have established Codes of Internal Procedures which provide for the process of appointments for their departments.

After an exhaustive deliberation, this Court approves the appointment of the following officers to serve only in the Transitory Government :

1)

Ms. MA. CARMELA VINZON as the Sanggunian Coordinator of the Transitory Government ;

2)

Ms.

ROXANNE

3)

4)

Mr. EDWARD JOSEPH OFILADA as the School of Management Liaison of the Transitory Government ;

5)

Ms. NEICY MARIE PILARCA as the School of Science and Engineering Liaison of the Transitory Government ;

6)

Ms. AESHA RAE CRUZ as the School of Social Sciences Liaison of the Transitory Government ;

7)

Ms. CIERYL CARESSA SARDOOL as the Chairperson of the Department of Communications of the Transitory Government ;

8)

Ms.

as

the

Chairperson

of

the

Department

10) Mr. JANN RAILEY MONTALAN as the Chairperson of the Department of the Secretariat of the Transitory Government.

This Court also approves the appointment of the following officers to serve for School Year 2016 - 2017 :

KRISTONI

GO

as

the

Chairperson

of

the

Department

of

External

2)

Ms. KIMBERLY LIM as the Chairperson of the Department of Student Welfare and Services.

For lack of nominees, this Court is not making any appointments for the positions of Chairperson of the Committee on Sociopolitical Affairs and Chairperson of the Committee on Student Concerns for the Transitory Government.

All appointees, excluding the Chairpersons of the Department of External Affairs

the

and

Department of Student Welfare and Services, are directed to discharge the duties

and responsibilities of the positions they hold until the end of the Transitory Government, which shall be determined by the proclamation and induction of the newly-elected set of officers of the Sanggunian after the General Elections to be conducted

by the Commission on Elections.

The Chairpersons of the Department of External Affairs and the Department of Student Welfare and Services are directed to discharge the duties and responsibilities

of the position they hold until the end of their term, as stated in their existing

Code of Internal Procedures.

The Chairpersons of the Department of Communications, Department of Finance, Department of Formation, and the Department of the Secretariat are directed

to formulate a Code of Internal Procedures which shall guide the newly-appointed

set of officers of the Sanggunian Departments once they assume their respective

positions.

This Court directs the Transitory Government to establish the Sanggunian into

an institution in which the student body shall recognize its relevance and to facilitate

a smooth and efficient transition from the Transitory Government into the

Sanggunian ng mga Mag-aaral ng mga Paaralang Loyola ng Ateneo De Manila by ensuring that efficient systems have been established for the Sanggunian to build upon.

The appointees to the Transitory Government are reminded that they are not merely position-fillers but rather they are the transitory Sanggunian. As such, the Transitory

Government must discharge the duties of the student government, which is first and

foremost, to be the official representative of the student body to the school administration.

This Court expresses the gratitude of the student body to the Transitory Government,

who has been working tirelessly to serve the student body even without official appointments

to legitimize their existence. The Court also enjoins the student body to support and

participate in the initiatives of the Transitory Government in building up the eventual

Sanggunian.

This Resolution shall take effect immediately.

SO ORDERED.
