The Democratic Alliance Student Organisation has won the annual Student Representative Council at NMMU held on September 16 and has elected 22-year-old Nicholas Nyathi who will take the reins from outgoing President Hlomela Bucwa on January 1, 2016.

The students of the Nelson Mandela Metropolitan University have spoken. The students have unequivocally said: ‘’DASO leads!”

In their thousands, and without equivocation, without hesitation, the students of NMMU have renewed the mandate of the SRC to represent students of the institution. The Democratic Alliance Student Organisation has won seven of the central portfolio seats, with the South African Students Congress (SASCO) taking five seats and the Economic Freedom Fighters Students’ Command (EFFSC) managing to occupy a single seat, according to the results issued by the Independent Electoral Commission (IEC).

Additionally, DASO has managed to win eight out of eight seats in the Oppidani Council, the seat for International Officer for Education and also managed to occupy four of the university’s seven faculty seats, with SASCO taking the remaining three faculties. The 6 942 students who took part in this year’s elections represent 34.7% of the student body, an increase of 4% from last year’s elections.

Tensions ran high as on Thursday morning when the results were read out at South campus SRC chambers and DASO managed to retain its position of power as the ruling student organisation at NMMU. Provisional results of the elections released by IEC delegate Siyabonga Maki were as follows:
