We have written a brief hearing reply to KDs proposed changes of the university board model after e-mail exchanges with the SiN board, a meeting with DION, and discussions with the leader of Studenttinget at NTNU. The proposed changes are briefly summarised in the last post. Given the short time to process this hearing we have tried to avoid expressing controversial opinions.
The reply discourages KD from reducing the 2/3-majority vote needed to change the board composition or introducing an external majority to a simple majority vote. It also questions the intent of opening up for an external majority in the first place. The rest of the reply is meant to encourage KD to re-formulate the law to be more clear regarding the board composition.
As the deadline is this Saturday, please take the time to read through the note (and propose changes) at your earliest convenience. I apologise for the outrageously short deadline.
Our preliminary reply is available here (in Norwegian only).
