UG SRC Presidential Election To Be Decided In Second Round

The much talked about University of Ghana (UG) Students' Representative Council (SRC) general elections failed to produce a President in the first round of polls as a run-off is set in 7 days between Amofa Emmanuel Adu and Esinam Afi Seade.

Presidential candidates for this year's election failed to secure a 50% +1 votes to be declared winner in the first round of voting.

According to UG SRC constitution, a candidate contesting for any position must obtain more than 50% of the total votes cast to emerge the winner of the said portfolio. From the certified election results announced by the electoral commissioner Rexford Opare on Thursday, 21st April, 2016, none of the candidates in the presidential race has crossed the 50% threshold. For this reason, second round of presidential polls is scheduled as per the constitution to be held within seven days from the day of declaration.

However, Ms Sika Aboraa secured 3679 votes to win the Secretary position beating her contender Ms Barbara Zen who polled 2898 votes.

In the other contest, FBI Prince polled 3397 to win the Treasurer position against Aquah's 3026 votes.

Below are the certified results declared by the EC:

Amofa – 2051 votes
Esinam – 1960 votes
Allen – 1781 votes
Shadrack – 278 votes
Wissi – 203 votes
