|Jaran Walia from Binus International speaks in GMDT 2013 final|
It was Jaran Walia's fourth trophy this year, reinforcing his position at the top of the 2013 Debater of the Year table. No other debater has won as many nationwide championships in 2013. The three previous victories came from the Indonesian Varsities English Debate, the National Universities Debating Championship and the Bawor Cup competition. UGM's Alif Satria bagged the best speaker award, giving the host a consolation prize and making him one of Jaran's closest rivals for the DOTY title.
