IYSSE wins seat in Humboldt University Parliament
22 January 2015
According to the preliminary election results released early Thursday morning by Humboldt University, the International Youth and Students for Social Equality will have one seat in the student parliament. The ballots were tabulated late Wednesday night following voting that was held over two days.
The two largest candidate lists—those of the Jusos (the Social Democratic Party's youth organization) and the Green Alternative List (related to the Green Party)—will each have seven seats in the student parliament.
The IYSSE election list received sufficient votes to achieve representation in the student parliament based on a campaign against the revival of German militarism and the transformation of the University into a center of right-wing and pro-war propaganda.
