DOTY 2014: UGM Pole Position No Longer Safe

Universitas Indonesia debaters, especially national champion and best speaker Dennys Kapa, are challenging the pole position in the 2014 Debater of the Year list that has been held by Universitas Gadjah Mada students since the start of this year. Dennys won the Jakarta Mini in July and the National Universities Debating Championship in August with different partners. The victories have propelled him to second place on the DOTY list with two points away from current leader Indriani Pratiwi from UGM. His NUDC partner, Aulia Anggita, is at fourth on the list.

The two UI speakers were not in the DOTY 2014 Top 10 in June due to their lack of competitive participation this year. The UI duo, who defeated UGM in the NUDC final, graduated a few days after becoming national champions but their scores from future debates will still be counted for DOTY until the end of 2014.

The current DOTY list combines results from July and August due to the low number of nationwide tournaments in those two months. From this priod, only results from NUDC and Jakarta Mini have been incorporated into the table. There is a flurry of competitions in September that started from a small competition in Semarang last week. But their results will be added at the end of the month.
