With a split decision of 4-1, UI A managed to pass the motion of “This house believes that the Arab League should consolidate to form a multi-sect army in order to actively fight ISIS” under the heading of terrorism, in a final battle against Universitas Gadjah Mada B, the fellow all-2014-batch team. This has made JOVED 2015 become special, since both of the team comprised of the youngest batch in their respective institutions. This brings up the excitement to see more names of bright-young talents creating legends in the scenes of Indonesian debating

The three teams we were sending, UI A, B, and C all successfully managed to break on the fist half to the elimination rounds after the hilarious debate in 6 rounds. UI A with a clean-sweep of 6VPS, followed by UI B on the 2nd rank with 5 VPs and UI C on the 6th rank with 4 VPs.Not stopping there, UI A, B and C continued their journey together until UI B and C very unfortunately had to end their awesome performances in quarterfinal. UI B was comprised of Kristi Ardiana (Law, 2013), Albert Santoso (Engineering, 2010) and Boy Al Idrus (Law, 2011). UI C –“the power puff girls” team was comprised of Monica Dwiyanti (Social and Political Sciences, 2013), I Gusti Ayu Sri Gayatri K.D (Social and Political Sciences, 2013) and Jessica Andriani Liong (Tourism, 2013).

On the individual tabulation, we claimed 4 places out of the Top 10 Speakers list. Albert Santoso is leading the tab with “Best Speaker” title. He is quickly followed by Regina Cara Riantoputra on the 3rd rank and his fellow team mates, Boy Al Idrus on the 4th and Kristi Ardiana on the co-6th. However, it is very sad that our N1 adjudicators fell shortly from breaking into the top 40 adjudicators. These great fighters were Naufal D. Adam (Economics and Business, 2014), Rini Yuliyanti (Public Health, 2013) and Robi Salamunef (Law, 2014). There were Gabriel Charlotte Wajong (Psychology, 2012), Dennys Victor Kapa (Social and Political Sciences, 2010), Roderick Jonathan Sibarani (Economics and Business, 2009) and Boby Andika Ruitang (Psychology, 2009) on the adj-breaking list, together with the Chief Adjudicator, Aulia Anggita Larasati (Social and Political Sciences, 2010).

By then, we would like to gratefully send our happy faces ending the first half of this 2015 debating season. Happy holiday and see you on the second half! (RSG)
