DA student wing can't contest election

2010-10-21 08:11
Durban - The Democratic Alliance youth wing was barred from contesting in student elections at the University of KwaZulu-Natal (UKZN) on Wednesday.

“The University of KwaZulu-Natal branch of the Democratic Alliance Student Organisation (DASO) was informed that it will not be allowed to contest the Student Representative Council elections,” said Mbali Ntuli, DA Youth chairperson.

Ntuli said the DASO was informed on Wednesday that they were not allowed to contest at the UKZN campuses in Howard College and Westville.

The elections started on Wednesday and would end on Thursday.

“The reason cited that DASO has not re-applied for recognition from UKZN.”

The DASO said the SA Students' Congress (Sasco) had also missed the deadline and should not be allowed to contest.

Ntuli said the UKZN constitution does not specify that an organisation needs to re-apply to contest the SRC elections.

Nomonde Mbadi, spokesperson for UKZN, said in terms of the SRC constitution, clubs and societies that wish to contest in the elections should apply three months before the election date.

“The DASO submitted their application after the closing date. We are informed by student governance that all other parties complied with requirements of the constitution.”
