A new Guild of Students executive has finally been voted in at The University of the West Indies, St Augustine.
By-elections were held on Wednesday after it was found that several candidates in the April 3 elections were not eligible to run for positions on the guild because they were not fully registered.
In a brief telephone interview on Thursday, the returning officer for the 2014 Guild elections, Prunella Mungroo, who gave the preliminary results, told the Express that the elections went off without a hitch.
“The elections went very smoothly. There was no opposition to anything. We had a steady flow of voters throughout the course of the day. We opened at 9 a.m. and closed at 9 p.m.”
The new Guild president is Matthew Peters of the Faculty of Humanities and Education, the secretary is Laura-lee Lynch of the Faculty of Medical Sciences. The three others voted to the Guild on Wednesday were the Postgraduate representative—Traverse Banton from the Faculty of Social Sciences, Faculty of Law representative Samuel Dennis and Social Sciences representative Adeola Young.
