#UGDecides: We’ll hand over 5 days after judicial board rules on election petition – Ag. SRC

- -


The outgoing executives of the University of Ghana Students’ Representative Council (UG SRC) have indicated that a handing over ceremony will be held only within five days after the ruling of the Judicial Board on an election petition.

A press release to the University community bearing the details of the four executives revealed that the judicial board is preparing to hear an election petition from a candidate in the just-ended 2021 SRC elections.

The notice explained that members of the board could not proceed to hear the case at the time of its submission because the second-semester examinations were ongoing and key parties and witnesses were not readily available.

This follows concerns being raised by a section of students on the arrangements for an official handing over to the newly elected executives.

“However, since examinations are now over, the judicial board has indicated that the petition will be accordingly heard. In light of that, the official handing over can only come off within 5 days after the decision of the board pursuant to article 32 (2) of the UGSRC constitution,” part of the release reads.

The outgoing executives noted a transfer of power will come off once all challenges regarding the legal process are resolved.

The leadership further called on students to exercise patience as the grievances of key stakeholders are being addressed.

However, a group calling itself a Coalition of University of Ghana Students against the abuse of power by the Dean of Students Affairs have stated that processes for transfer of power need not be halted.

According to the Lead Convener of the group, Kwesi Atuahene, the constitution of the University of Ghana Students’ Representative Council (SRC) outlines legal provisions to be followed after the declaration of official results of an election.
