One of the candidates in this year’s National Union of Ghana students elections, Anthony Kwame Julius, says that the delay in the commencement of voting has given contenders more time to meet with delegates.
Voting was scheduled to start at 8am on Monday but the process is yet to commence as of 7pm.
Whilst delegates have expressed frustration at the development, Julius says that some positives can be derived from the delay.
“The delay presents some of us aspirants an opportunity to meet people that we have not met already, so in as much as we might run into the night for the election there is also that bit of advantage where you meet people that you have not met already,” he told UniversNews
Julius adds that he is “completely fine with the process so far and I’m hoping at the end of the day we will carry it”
The Electoral Commission is holding a crunch meeting with candidates in the election to finalize issues concerning the process.
UniversNews reporters at the Madina Institute of Science and Technology in Accra, where the election is being held, have reported of heavy security presence.
A presidential candidate in the election, Dr. Sylvester Owusu Amoako has also alleged that some ballot papers have gone missing.
