Students look for elevated talks with management

12 April 2014, 05:30

SRC ELECTION RESULTS ANNOUNCED

Final results for the hotly contested WSU SRC elections were announced on Tuesday 8 April for all the University’s four campuses.

Elections this year were in line with the divisional governance and management system as outlined in the University’s new Statute.

A total of 11,810 votes were cast across all campuses; 5,042 at the Mthatha campus; 3,026 at Buffalo City Campus; 3,259 at the Butterworth Campus; and 483 at the Queenstown Campus.

Three student organisations, namely SASCO, PASMA and the SCO contested the elections across all four campuses. The ANCYL, DASO and AZASCO only contested at the Mthatha Campus.   

The results were as follows:

Mthatha Campus:

Sasco: 4 seats

Pasma: 4 seats

ANCYL: 4 seats 

SCO: 2 seats

Butterworth Campus:

Sasco: 3 seats

Pasma: 3 seats

Buffalo City Campus:

Sasco : 4 seats

Pasma: 3 seats

SCO : 1 seat

Queenstown Campus:

Sasco : 3 seats

Pasma : 2 seats

The seats are allocated according to the number of students per campus; however as Queenstown is a small campus with under 1,000 students, mandatory seats are allocated to ensure that student affairs can operate effectively.

“The SRC elections this year have run very smoothly and students have displayed admirable political maturity. The Department of Student Affairs has been conducting workshops and roadshows for the past few months as part of its voter education programme and campus electoral committees also participated in the planning of this year’s election,” said university spokesperson Angela Church.  

Dotwana said an executive will be formed comprising the four campus presidents. There will no longer be in overarching Institutional Student Representative Council according to the new SRC Constitution that has been developed and agreed upon.

The new SRCs will be inaugurated at an Oath-taking Ceremony at Mthatha Campus on Friday 11 April.

Students were very vocal about what issues they wanted the incumbent leadership to deal with as a matter of urgency.

“Issues such as the insufficient residences, inadequate teaching and learning equipment and material, efficiency of ICT services, proper and functional support services, especially regarding students, must be elevated to more strategic engagements with management,” said third-year student Amahle Ndlwana.

Calls for political in-fighting and factionalism to come to an end were also sounded by a number of students, some refusing to vote because of these unsavoury practices.
