June 2nd is the local Elections day and there was absent voting on May 27th and 28th. Because of the enthusiasm for voting, many UOS students who live in Seoul and are far away from their hometowns were able to vote in the school on May 27th.

Fifteen universities through the whole nation were selected to be installed with booths for absent voting. It’s a bit of a shame considering 54 universities applied for the absent voting spot. To be qualified as an absent voting area, more than 2,000 people of the institute or area should report as an absent voter. And I’m proud to say that more than 2,000 ‘UOSians’ are paying attention to the elections.

Among the selected 15 universities, only 3 of them are in Seoul. Besides the UOS the other two universities are Kyunghee University and Korea University. Considering we have small number of undergraduates compared with those two universities, it’s a really an impressive achievement. Our students proved that the UOS students are not ignorant about political issues.

This is an important Election. For voters, they get to choose which candidate will do a better job. Subsequently, they will vote for whom they feel will make their life more prosperous. Since the results reflect people’s view toward the present political power, there always has been ‘biting each other’ between the ruling party and opposing parties during the campaign.

This time it’s worse. And their over competiveness is corrupting the true meaning of an election. Candidates of the ruling party try to take advantage of people’s anxiousness caused by the Cheonan incident. They don’t hesitate to call North Korea the main enemy. It even seems like they rather win the elections then avoid a war.

And opposing parties also rely on people’s affection for the late former president Rho Moo-hyeon. This is causing the whole nation to be surrounded by tension. We have to vote for candidates who have a positive vision for our nation, and it shouldn’t be interrupted by ideological inclinations.
