Michael Saliba won the Freshers’ Cup 2010 of the Oxford Union. In late November, the former president of Debattierclub Stuttgart (DCS) competed with other freshmen at the famous debating union. The Ph.D. candidate from Stuttgart won on the motion “This house would rig elections to keep extremist parties out of parliament if it could get away with it” from opening government.

The Oxford Union stages this Freshers’ Cup annually for students of all kinds who start or continue debating at Oxford. About 60 freshmen collected points  in five debates over the first trimester. The eight best speakers break to the final held in late November this year. Speakers’ positions are drawn by lots and speakers prepare individually.
