UFS announces SRC election results
2008-08-23

The results for the Student Representative Council (SRC) and Student Parliament of the University of the Free State’s (US) Main Campus were announced today. The elections took place on Wednesday, 20 August 2008.

Ms Heloïse Jordaan, B.Com.Hons. student and Freedom Front+ candidate, was elected as SRC President. She was SRC member for media, marketing and liaison in 2007/2008.

This year three organisations, namely the DA, Sasco and Freedom Front+, took part in the elections. Altogether 6 926 students took part in the voting this year, while 6 820 students voted last year.

“I am glad to report that, according to the Independent Election Authority (IEA), the elections and the announcement of the results took place without any incidents,” said Dr Ezekiel Moraka, Vice-Rector: Student Affairs.

“While the percentage of students participating in the elections remains low, the various initiatives by the IEA in partnership with student organisations are starting to yield good results. This includes communication efforts to improve awareness of the elections and the access to voting stations,” said Dr Moraka.

“The UFS will provide its full support to the efforts of the newly elected student leadership as well as representatives of various student organisations to further improve student participation in the elections. We want to work with the student leadership to continue the process of transformation currently under way at the University,” said Dr Moraka.
