Academic Senate of Masaryk University in Monday's election of a new Rector could not choose one candidate. After Mgr. Vaclav Line gave up his candidacy for the post of head of the University professors applying only Fiala and Wechsler. Name the winner could be known as early as next Monday, which will host the third ballot of the Senate.

For receiving the Rector's title was not enough, because the election of a new Rector is necessary to obtain at least 24 votes of 31 senators present (out of 46 senators). In the second round of the forces settled – both candidates won by 18 votes and was elected rector again. The third round of elections declared rectors prof. Vašků next Monday, the 26th April in the large meeting room, the Rector's Office.

** Course of choice ** After the Academic Senate Chairman Henry Vomela officially opened the election of the rector, took the word leadership election of the Rector Anna Vašků familiar and present a detailed timetable for elections, as well as a problem that has arisen termination of mandates and Nantl Cahy senators representing the students. After both senators this year completed master's degree, was the demise of their mandates, and so yesterday's e­lections could not actively participate. Subsequently Professor Vašků invited candidates Fiala, line and Wechsler to drew from a hat with a ticket number which determined the order for a ten-minute presentation of their election programs.

** Extensive development can not be stopped ** The first words took Petr Fiala from the Faculty of Social Studies, which began to quote from the book by British writer David Lodge. The parable of the unfinished campus, which divided the functioning university, brought a smile on your face especially the current Rector Zlatuška. Fiala went on to outline the fundamental problems of the university and at the same time trying to find a solution that would fit into the framework of changes that are induced. „The rector is the official managing company called University,“ said Fiala. In the event that he was elected as the new rector, the aim is rather act as a central point of creating new possibilities. Specifically mentioned was the completion of the campus in Bohunice, creating better conditions for foreign students (eg English Information System), and support e-learning. Fiala did not avoid the burning issues such as receiving an increasing number of students (this is not going to resort) and financing Accommodation and Catering Services (which is necessary to change it), which is still at MU could not satisfactorily resolved.

** As a surgeon I learned fast decision-making and empathy ** In turn the second speaker was John Wechsler of the Faculty of Medicine, who opened his speech with praise of purple rhetorical skills. Although prof. Wechsler in his ten-point program has set many a worthy goal, did not bring anything new and mostly restricted to the more general phrase emphasizing the importance of certain reforms. They also spoke of completing the campus, then went on the wishes of rapprochement of the academic community, which could be achieved in his assessment of reciprocal teaching students. Wechsler gave further clear that the role of the Rector would be planted by individual faculties autonomizaci inspired by the European Union and would change the method of recruitment, which should be specific to each discipline. Recognizes the importance of establishing a legal business and academic upgrading the top sport in the MU. At the end of his speech professor. Wechsler said he would like to reassure the university and created a friendly environment for her.

** Toss a coin ** The highlight of the presentation of candidates for the Rector Vaclav Linka performances also from the Faculty of Social Studies in whose speech three months završující recesistické campaign came to see the curious from all over the University. But the links at the very beginning of his speech at the nomination resigned, the reasons for its decision more the competence of the other two candidates. Subsequently, senators criticized the destruction of mandates and Cahy Nantl, which according Linka occurred during a few days, when both senators were waiting for admission to doctoral studies. And though there are now two graduate students, and therefore do not have a mandate not to vote. The Final Line accuses President of the Chamber, citing that Cahy Nantl and wanted to improve its position in the election to the position of President of the Slovak Republic. In the same recesistickém (?) Spirit that carried the debate on how Linkovova elected archons in Athens. Holds the ancient pattern, recommended Line Academic Senate also appoint a new Rector lot and not choice, thereby avoiding disputes and machinations. Now, when applying for the post of rector of only two candidates proposed by the Senate Line to throw coins and he did so. „Fallen Masaryk,“ concluded his candidacy the most controversial, but clearly the most popular among students, ex-candidate.

The result of yesterday's e­lection evaluate not only students, but also a surprising senators themselves. Fiala, who was on the basis of its potential for reform considered the clear favorite, after the second round has no advantage over his challenge. Behind the scenes in connection with an unsuccessful choice speaks of revolt against the Rector's current Zlatuška. A wave of discontent is also raised against the termination of mandates and Nantl Cahy senators who will be in next week, replaced by other members of their parent faculty senates.
