Things are stirring at WSO again. New candidates for the board have turned up and the possibility of a merger with PSF has raised its head. Is a reincarnation in the offing?
Meanwhile, talks about a merger have also been held between WSO and the student party PSF, reports PSF member Derek Pan. Quite apart from the question of whether the parties see eye to eye, finances play a role too, says Pan. ‘Both organizations are funded by the university. What would that mean if they merged? Would the university allow that?'
But Karmijn van den Berg stresses that the game is not over. ‘No decision has been made yet, and nothing has been discussed with the members. It could turn out that none of it is feasible in the end. I will be able to say more in a couple of weeks.'
