By E. GEOFFREY Dadzie - MnM News |26th February 2016

MnM TEKNOLOGIES LTD. was at it again this year at the recently conducted MSA elections. The company which is well noted for its E-voting services by many institutions and groups was called upon to serve the Medical School Association, KNUST on the 26th of February for its maiden general elections. With free and fair elections being our utmost priority, all was set for the elections on Friday 26th after all the aspirants and EC officials were content with the testing phase (demo prior to the election date).

On this day, the team arrived at SMS KNUST campus at exactly 6:30am to set up for the elections which was to begin at about 8:00am. The elections began at about 8:30am for the pre-clinicals section on campus KNUST. The numbers grew steadily and at about 10:30am 200 persons had voted.

Also at KATH (for the clinical students), it began at 8:45am and at about 10.30am a total of 93 persons had voted. Students rushed to take part in the voting exercise right after their lecture hours and ward routines and the numbers were encouraging as expected because unlike last year, there was an increase in the number of candidates and the competition was intense especially for the presidential and vice presidential positions.

The day came to a close and the elections ended successfully with astonishing turn out of events at both centres. Students thronged the voting centres to catch a glimpse of the final results as our team of experts, led by Steven Ofori and Rex Asare at campus and KATH respectifully, disclosed the much awaited outcome. With a total of 430 votes recorded at the pre-clinical centre on campus and 511 votes recorded at the clinical centre at KATH, the results were as follows:
