MASHAVA – Elections to choose a new Great Zimbabwe University (GZU) Student Representative Council (SRC) were nullified at Mashava because of their lack of order and transparency.
These elections have now been moved to the second week of the first semester next year.
SRC election candidates from all different unions ZINASU, ZICOSU, COADESU and independent candidates agreed that the ballot box in Mashava should not be opened after voting because of clear flaws in the voting process that took place over three days including at mid night.
There was also a critical shortage of ballot papers that only saw 170 students instead of a potential 5 000 students voting.
The elections were originally set for September 6, 2016 but were stopped by the courts citing irregularities. They were then scheduled for November 3, but on the day ballot papers were not available only to come the following day at 4pm with a handfull of students managing to vote.
Culture Nyahunda a candidate for the position of secretary general for COADESU said the decision made to nullify the results was in the best interest of students.
 "I am not happy with the outcome, I am going to file an urgent chamber application to compel the institution to count the votes because results that were never there cannot be nullified," said Nyoka.education
