Meet the members of JNU Students' Union that will finally take charge after legal drama, midnight notices
The Delhi High Court directed the JNU Election Committee to release the results of the elections held on September 6
Almost ten days after the counting concluded, the JNU Election Committee finally announced the results at 7 pm on September 17. The Delhi High Court directed the Committee to declare the results today and disposed off the petitions filed by two students raising questions about the validity of the elections.
The JNU Election Committee representative argued that the facts raised by the petitioners was incorrect and had misled the court. "The Court directed that if any complaints have to be raised, they need to be done according to the Lyngdoh Committee Recommendations with the Grievance Redressal Counsel," the release by the JNUSU said. Members of the EC submitted their responses to the notices issued to them regarding violation of several clauses in the conduct of the elections on September 16. They have not received any response to the notices but said that the GRC will no longer be able to intervene because these are court orders.
However, the Court has ordered that any other issues can be raised with the GRC in the future. With this verdict, the JNUSU invited the entire student community to attend the declaration of the results and also for a victory march at 9 pm today.
