Student poll date to be fixed soon
Feb 3, 2019-
The Tribhuvan University (TU) is scheduled to announce the election date of the free students’ union (FSU) soon. TU registrar Dilli Prasad Upreti said discussions were underway to fix the election date.Though some media published news stating that February 26 was fixed as the day for FSU polls, he showed its concerns over the unverified news. “The date has not been fixed yet,” he said According to him, the TU Executive Council is expected to announce the poll schedule soon.
The biennial election could not be regular in all campuses in recent years due to disputes over the electoral system and age-limit among students unions. TU student welfare and sports directorate’s executive director Ganga Bahadur Thapa said elections would be held by mid-March.
The last election was held on March 1, 2017, but it could not be held in all campuses. Only 26 TU constituent campuses, out of 60, and 80 community campuses witnessed the FSU election. All Nepal National Free Students Union General Secretary Ain Mahar said discussions were underway to reach an agreement to fix the date.
