By Express News Service
In view of the limited period of campaigning for the Delhi University Students’ Union (DUSU) elections, campaigning has been allowed on college campuses and each candidate will be permitted entry into a college with a maximum of four supporters, said a circular from the office of the chief election officer.
The circular stated that candidates participating in the DUSU elections can use the “wall of democracies” available on the campus for pasting handmade posters only. It further mentioned that each candidate will be allowed entry into the college premises with a maximum of four supporters, who must carry valid DU-ID cards.
Ensuring College Property Protection
The authorities have been advised to form an election committee to ensure that no damage is done to the college property during the campaigning process. The circular emphasized that the Code of Conduct/Lyngdoh Committee guidelines must be strictly followed, and any violations may lead to disqualifications and criminal punishments under the relevant guidelines and acts.
Gap of Three Years
The elections for the student body of Delhi University, represented by DUSU, are being held after a gap of three years. The previous DUSU elections took place in 2019, but they couldn’t be held in 2020 and 2021 due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The disruptions to the academic calendar also prevented the elections in 2022.
According to a circular issued by the University of Delhi, the last date for submitting nomination papers, scrutiny of nomination papers, and publication of the list of nominated candidates is yet to be announced. However, the last date for withdrawal of nominations is September 13. The date for counting of votes is also yet to be announced.
