Hasanuddin BP Goes to the Host Again
Makassar's Universitas Hasanuddin again proved to be the kings of Eastern Indonesia for varsity debating after winning the region's main BP tournament for the second time in as many years it has been held. Joved Unhas B (Andi Aumi & Ayu Rachman) yesterday defeated fellow members of HEDS, cross-city rivals Politeknik Ujung Pandang A and up-and-coming Universitas Haluoleo B from Kendari. Hasanuddin BP is the first debating tournament in less developed Eastern Indonesia using the British Parliamentary format. In its second edition this week, the competition attracted debaters from all over Sulawesi island and a school from the easternmost province of Papua.
