The 2017 University of Ghana SRC elections has been called off by the electoral commission after the various aspirants and the Electoral commission reached a consensus.
The elections which was scheduled to take place, today at 8am was bedeviled with major challenges with regards to logistics.
Radio Univers earlier reported that almost all polling centers looked ill-equipped for the elections. Accra City campus was first to halt the voting process as the campus authorities were not informed about the elections.
However speaking on Radio Univers’ prime news bulletin Amanee on Tuesday, First deputy electoral commissioner of the University of Ghana SRC, Ivan Ankamafio conveyed that the 2017 SRC elections has been called off.
He explained that this decision was taken in crunch meeting with the various candidates contesting in the race to the Union Building.
“We just had a meeting together with the stakeholders [aspirants]. Per what we arrived at, we called off the election because as it stands now some polling stations haven’t voted yet because Folson hasn’t installed the database on all the laptops that will be used. And its now, 1 pm per my watch and elections haven’t still started yet so the only option is to call off the election and arrange a different day that will suit every prospective winner of this election”, he said.
The Deputy EC was however skeptical as to the new date, adding that it will be communicated in due time.
“We have called our commission together so that we sit down to take a decision as to when we will conduct the next election”, he added.
The new date for the elections will be communicated shortly after a consultation with the Dean of students affairs, Professor Francis Nunoo and the various candidates.
It must be also noted that the proposed SRC Presidential debate which was scheduled to take place yesterday didn’t come off due to some technical challenges.
