Kim Dominic Natanauan (WINNERS) won the 2020 LSSC Presidential race. He received a total of 1,026 votes compared to 796 votes received by Shiena Oruga of Laban Party.
After two years of consecutive losses, the WINNERS Party regained control over Student Council.
In a live interview with Natanauan, he stated that, “Wala akong masabi ngayon, ‘di ko alam kung ano pero kabado, nakakapanghina po, hindi ako makapaniwala.”
“Unang una salamat kay God para sa pagkakataong binigay na ‘to. ‘Di pa rin ako makapaniwala pero ‘yun nagpapasalamat ako sa lahat ng sumuporta sa’kin, sa lahat ng suporta sa WINNERS Party, maraming, maraming salamat sa inyong lahat so suporta niyo ‘yung nagdadala sa akin”
Oruga, through a message sent to Communicators’ Society said, “Yung totoo, naging malungkot pero konti lang. Mas lamang yung happiness, kasi yung pagtakbo ko hindi naman para sa sarili ko kundi para sa students naman. At tsaka kahit di ako nanalo, nandito pa rin ako para sa students kung need nila ng help.”
When asked about her future plans, “Ngayon lang, mas madami na yung oras ko para sa sarili ko, mas less na yung ginagawa unlike nung officer ako katulad last year. Pero nandito pa rin naman ako para umalalay at tumulong sa lahat ng mga susunod na lssc officers.”
Office of the Student Affairs organized the first online elections for Lyceum Supreme Student Council. Voting commenced last October 5 and ended today at 5:00PM. This year’s election recorded 77% Voter turnover.

START OF NEW LEADERSHIP
Natauanan’s main advocacies are online assistance, LSSC scholarship, and student health care monitoring. “Ang priority natin dito is mainly yung assistance po na maibigay po natin sa kapwa Lyceans.” said Natanauan during the Miting de Avance. He also added that as a student leader, they must be the role model for well-informed and responsible individuals.
Though winning the highest position, Natanauan is the only officer elected under WINNERS Party, the rest are from LABAN Party.
“Ayon siyempre medyo masakit sa kalooban na ganoon nga nanalo tayo pero hindi yung mga kasama natin. So, siguro yung isa namang goal ng bawat candidates na tumakbo for LSSC and college student council, siguro may positibong nakikita ring samahan pero yun, isa lang naman yung aim nating lahat na mga student leaders na makapag-share.”, said Natanauan in a live interview.
Other winners are Rubuen Mayang for Vice President (LABAN), Armeen Kaur for Secretary (LABAN), Crissabel Villanueva for Treasurer (LABAN), Khim Joshua Magtibay for Auditor and Mary Glorie Anne Habacon for PRO (LABAN). Departmental Representatives are Jhamy Mae De Mesa for CAS (LABAN), Angelo Chavez for CBA (LABAN), Denzel Justin Obel for CITHM (LABAN), Ferly Ann Revilloza for COECS (LABAN) and Patricia Mariz Agbalo for LPU SC (LABAN).
As people adjust to the new normal, Lyceans walk their lives while tuned in on their gadgets, we must mark this occasion as a step of improvement in the online set-up. Student Council should offer opportunities for their fellow students and give them the right, and the privilege to be heard by the authorities.
To continue the legacy of their predecessors and to leave a mark in the history of the LSSC, the responsibilities of the president, and officers are tied with them. Whether they will be able to uphold and surpass these expectations is something only actions could tell.
