ALSA UI E-Comp 2012: UI, ITB, UGM, Bakrie in the Semis
The A teams of Indonesia's four leading debating powerhouses made it to the semifinals of the 2012 ALSA UI E-Competition, the longest-running tournament in the country. Universitas Indonesia, Institut Teknologi Bandung, Universitas Gadjah Mada and Universitas Bakrie have all won the national championship IVED. Bakrie joined the elite IVED champions club this year with a win against UI in Malang. But, it is the only one from the four that has never championed ALSA UI although a Bakrie team topped the tab in last year's edition. The semifinals and ultimate debate will take place tomorrow.
