Agency News

Akhil Bharatiya Vidyarthi Parishad (ABVP) has won on three of the top four posts of the central panel of Delhi University Students’ Union (DUSU) on Friday.

NSUI was able to bag only one seat. ABVP has won on President, Vice President and Joint Secretary Seats, while NSUI bagged Secretary Post as per the results for the DUSU polls declared today.

As the candidates turned up late, the counting of votes got delayed for two hours. The screens which show live counting faced technical issues after which candidates demanded that they be made functional. After one screen started functioning, the counting began around 10.30 am.

The voter turnout in DUSU polls on Thursday was recorded at 39.90 per cent. Last year election saw a 44.46 per cent voter turnout. The polling for four positions of the DUSU ended amid allegations of EVM malfunctioning.

Over 1.3 lakh students were eligible to cast their vote. As many as 144 EVMs were used for students’ union polls and 137 were used for college union polls.
