Arsh Husain started this petition to Current E-Board of PTY@FSU

Compared to past semesters, the current executive board’s performance has not lived up to the expectations of the Panamanian community at FSU. Most members of this organization still don’t know who their executive board is, and how they acquired those positions without any election process. We are concerned about how things will be moving forward, specially with the upcoming Spring 2021 elections, and are trying to get involved into this matter, so that history doesn’t repeat itself. Those of us truly interested in the success and wellbeing of the organization want to petition for the development of a better democracy and constitution.

The previous boards have not permitted us to engage in the act of voting for higher executive positions such as president and vice-president, choosing their officials internally amongst them, based solely on nepotism. Some officials have been re-elected multiple semesters, and even ascended into higher positions without showing any improvements or results. This rule has also resulted in graduating students giving these positions out to other members of their board, without any election process and real democracy taking place. Under this jurisdiction, we would like for the constitution to be amended and for that clause to permit any member of the Panamanian Student Organization to become eligible to vote on these higher positions, while also being able to run for them, regardless if they were part of the previous executive board or not. 

We believe that every member of this organization should get the chance to participate in active elections where all executive positions are voted on, while also being able to provide their input for making the Panamanian Student Organization one of the best at FSU.
