#UGDecides: Isaac Agyemang wins UG SRC presidential race

Level 300 Archaeology student, Isaac Agyemang has been elected as president of the University of Ghana Students Representative Council (SRC).

He succeeds Sylvester Amoako and will lead the students front of the University for the 2019/2020 academic year.

Isaac Agyemang took quite a comfortable lead in the Friday April 12 election as votes were collated at the SRC Union Building.

Tuesday’s elections at the Korle-bu and Jean Nelson Aka hall polling station became necessary following the annulment of votes at those voting centres by the Electoral Commission (EC).

The EC, led by Roland Tettey, had also annulled the votes from the Commonwealth and Mensah Sarbah hall polling stations but after a Judicial Board ruling, the results from the two centres were upheld.

According to provisional results received from our reporters, Isaac Agyemang and his running mate, Louis Owusu Banahene garnered a total of 469 votes from the two polling stations – Korle-bu and Jean Nelson.

Anthony Julius and his running mate, Kwaku Asante also gained a total of 231 votes from the two centres.

Speaking to UniversNews after his declaration as President-elect, Isaac Agyemang mentioned that the race had been a tough one and did not expect a prolonged electoral process at the onset.

“This journey has been a tiresome one and it has not been easy. We didn’t expect the process to come this far but things have unfolded in its rightful way”

We’re hopeful that in subsequent elections, lessons will be learnt and wrongs will be rights

Denise Kagal Abaniaba also recorded victory over Winifred Duncan in the General Secretary race.

Although Sarbah Andam garnered the most votes for the Treasurer office, there will be a run-off election as she could not hit the 50% votes mark.

At a date which will be set later, she will run against runner-up Perry Agyarko.
