Delhi University Students’ Union (DUSU) elections will be held on September 9.
The last date for nomination is September 1 and the last date for withdrawal of nomination is September 3, the university said in a statement.
Students who study in morning colleges will vote between 8.30am and 12.30pm. In evening colleges voting will be between 3.00pm and 7pm.
The University is yet to announce the date, time and venue for counting of votes.
The university has appointed a team of officials for smooth conduct of the keenly contested polls.
“The vice-chancellor has appointed D S Rawat of the department of chemistry as the chief election officer, Rajesh Tandon from the department of botany as chief returning officer and Pinki Sharma from the law faculty as the returning officer for the conduct of 2016-17 elections,” Das said.
Meena Panickar from the faculty of law and Ms Abha Shukla from the faculty of commerce have been appointed as additional members in the team.
Apart from DUSU, which is an umbrella council, many colleges have their own students union for which they hold separate elections.
“The VC has appointed principals of colleges and heads of institutions affiliated to Delhi University as election officer for the conduct of elections in their respective colleges and institutions,” Das said.
Last year, the DUSU polls were swept by RSS-affiliated Akhil Bharatiya Vidyarthi Parishad (ABVP) with Congress-backed National Students’ Union of India (NSUI) and AAP’s Chhatra Yuva Sangharsh Samiti (CYSS) failing to win even a single seat out of the four seats.
