Consequently, the candidate of another party called “Junsul” became the sole candidate for the 2012 GSC, but some objections were made. Action has been against the election result and applied for an injunction to declare the election invalid to the court. The final decision of the court has been postponed until Mid-January. Lee So-jung (Freshman, Dept. of English Language and Literature) said that she could not understand why this situation had arisen, but there would be another vote.

And the students who live far from school but cannot use the shuttle bus request expanding the bus course. CNU is going to extend bus routes to all parts of Gwangju in the future.
