The new ruling party won on a platform of unity and change against the administration party, the Delegation of Advocates Grounded on Action and Nobility (DAGAN), the successor of the ruling party Pisay Leaders Inspiring Freedom and Excellence (Pisay LIFE).

The new government is expected to step down by the end of this Academic Year in compliance with the transitory provisions of the new Student Alliance Constitution, which provides for the next election to be held on May 12, 2017.
