The KNUST SRC Parliament within the week approved the UNRC Constitution. This Constitution caters for the several loopholes and gaps that most residential facilities representatives face in trying to coordinate activities and also secure funding for various pertinent issues within these residential and geographical enclaves. The Constitution made provisions for the inclusion of Tutors to help representatives of these geographical segments making up the student residential areas and has led to the creation of the Campus, Ayeduase North, Ayeduase South, Bomso-Ahinsan, Kentinkrono-Ayigya, Kotei- Gyinase and New Site- Boadi-Emina Constituencies.
The KNUST SRC Electoral Commission has today, May 21, 2021 opened nominations for the portfolios of Member of Parliament from the above-listed residential constituencies. These openings come ahead of various colleges’ and SRC elections. The nominations are scheduled to be closed on Monday, May 24, 2021. The forms can be picked at the SRC Secretariat within the hours of 10:00am to 3:00pm each day until the deadline.
The communique released from the out of the KNUST SRC EC stated emphatically that
“For the Avoidance of doubt, members wishing to contest elections in the various constituencies must be residents of the constituencies at the time of picking of forms.”
The other provisions of the UNRC Constitution such as the attachment of Tutors appointed by the University’s management to guide the work of these newly created constituencies is yet to be duly made public to the University community.
