High attendance at MaasX election debate

Should the turnout of students in this month’s municipal elections be anywhere near as high as at last night’s event, then the organisers of the MaasX debate will be doubly pleased. The Maastricht Student Council will then have achieved its goal: motivating students to use their democratic right to vote. The Franz Palmzaal, the massive lecture hall of the UM School of Business and Economics, was almost filled to capacity (670 seats) on Monday night and those who had come for information and some measure of entertainment were not disappointed.
