It was a four-candidate race for the Student’s Representative Council (SRC) president portfolio, in the just ended election at the Evangelical Presbyterian University College (EPUC) -Ho on Saturday, August 21, 2021.

The public relations officer contest, which also saw 2 candidates had Deborah Tawiah, winning with 369 votes, as against her competitor Michael Tsuiatorfe’s 129 votes.
Positions that went unopposed include, Sports Secretary, Rueben Kofi Tetteh, local PUSAG President, Emmanuel Okai and Treasurer, Bless Komla Doke.
George, who had a female running mate, Mavis Elorm Hormeku promised to work with the other candidates.
“I am very happy for the trust they have in us, as a team. We are very grateful and we are saying, that the promise we made to them during the Manifesto reading, we will stand by it. Moreover, we are willing to work with all the other candidates, when they are willing to join us to move SRC forward together.”
The Electoral Commission Chair, Desmond Quarshie, in a post interview with CBC says, they have had a successful and fair election, despite some irregularities.
“We thank God for a successful election period. We are particularly glad that, this hurdle is cleared and all students will focus on the upcoming examination. I won’t say we have had a perfect electoral period but it has largely been a good exercise because we had few challenges.”
However, the George Ametor’s administration will be expected to appoint a secretary at their first sitting of the 13th General Assembly, as no one aspired for that position.
The Raynolds Agbenyenu administration will in the coming days, schedule a handing over ceremony after which the new executive will begin work.
