MSA 2017 GENERAL ELECTIONS AT KNUST

By OMANE MARFO JOSHUA - MnM News |16th March 2017

MnM TEKNOLOGIES LTD. is well noted for its E-voting services by many institutions and groups; and as such the team was once again called upon to serve the Medical School Association, KNUST on the 16th of March this year for its maiden general elections. With free and fair elections being our utmost priority, all was set for the elections on Thursday 16th after all the aspirants and EC officials were content with the testing phase (simulation prior to the election date).

The elections began some minutes after 9AM for both the clinicals and pre-clinicals centers. As expected, students rushed to take part in the voting exercise right after their lecture hours. The numbers grew steadily and at 12:30PM, the total votes cast was about 200 for each center.

Like every election year at MSA KNUST, there are some positions that are keenly contested. This year's elections had the candidates for the positions of Treasurer(Jeff & Maame Afua) and Exchange Officer(Kofi & Roland) battling for victory.

Despite their hardwork and campaigning during the season, there can only be one winner; but only time will tell.

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 Stephen Ofori and Joshua Omane at campus and KATH respectifully, disclosed the much awaited outcome. With a total of 519 votes recorded at the pre-clinical centre on campus and 551 votes recorded at the clinical centre at KATH, the results were as follows:
