A level 300 Medical Laboratory student of the University of Ghana, Korkuvi Antonio Yayrator, has been elected as the new Electoral Commissioner of the Commonwealth Hall Junior Common Room (JCR).
The electioneering process which ended on Tuesday, April 27, 2021 was conducted separately for both cohorts of students under the University’s modular system.
The election, which recorded no unfortunate incident, saw Antonio garner 228 valid votes.
Oti Acheampong Barimah followed closely with 226 valid votes, making him the First Deputy EC for the JCR.
The Second Deputy EC will therefore be Okyere Godwin Opoku who managed to secure 210 votes.
Other candidates who contested to be elected for same portfolio were David Blankson and Ofuji Francis who got only 7 and 15 votes, respectively.
Per the Commonwealth Hall JCR Constitution, the newly elected ECs can begin their work by ensuring that elections are held for JCR executives.
