Teachers Panel Triumphs in IIUI Academic Staff Association Election

The Teachers Panel has secured a resounding victory in the Academic Staff Association (ASA) election at the International Islamic University Islamabad (IIUI), garnering 241 votes and defeating The Academicians by a margin of 88 votes. The election results saw Professor Dr. Tariq Javed from the Faculty of Science elected as the President of the Association, with Dr. Faizur Raheem from the International Institute of Islamic Economics chosen as the Secretary General.

Why this matters: The outcome of this election has significant implications for the academic community at IIUI, as it reflects the university's values and priorities. The Teachers Panel's victory may also influence the institution's policies and direction, potentially impacting the education and experiences of thousands of students.

Other elected cabinet members include Dr. Abid Masood and Dr. Ambreen Abbasi as Vice Presidents from the Male and Female Campuses respectively, Dr. Muhammad Imran and Ms. Kiran Kiani as Joint Secretaries, Dr. Ahmad Hammad as Secretary Finance, and Mr. Ihsan Malik and Dr. Sumera Saghir Ahmad as Secretaries of Information. The newly elected President expressed his gratitude to the IIUI academic community, stating, "I assure them of my full dedication to resolving all outstanding issues of my constituency. I also thank the members of my cabinet from the last year who stood beside me."

The 2024 election saw the same panels contesting as the previous year, with the Teachers Panel increasing their lead from 59 votes in 2023 to 88 votes this year. This significant increase demonstrates the growing trust and confidence the IIUI community has placed in the leadership and policies of the Teachers Panel. The new cabinet has pledged to work diligently to fulfill their promises, restore the rule of law within the institution, and protect the international and Islamic identity of the university.

The International Islamic University Islamabad, a prestigious institution of higher learning, was established in 1980 with the aim of providing quality education while promoting Islamic values and principles. The university has since grown to encompass multiple faculties and institutes, attracting students and scholars from around the world. The Academic Staff Association plays a crucial role in representing the interests and concerns of the academic community within the university, making the election of its leadership a significant event in the institution's calendar.

The decisive victory of the Teachers Panel in the 2024 Academic Staff Association election at the International Islamic University Islamabad reflects the academic community's desire for continuity and their faith in the panel's ability to address their concerns effectively. As the newly elected cabinet assumes office, the university eagerly awaits the implementation of policies and initiatives that will further enhance the institution's academic excellence and Islamic character.
