UWC maintains SRC elections were transparent
Some student organisations claim ballot boxes were tampered with & that some students voted twice.
CAPE TOWN - The University of the Western Cape (UWC) maintains its disputed SRC elections were transparent and that an auditing firm observed the process.
Some student organisations claim ballot boxes had been tampered with and some students were allowed to vote twice.
UWC spokesperson Aidan van den Heever confirmed that the student organisations made objections during the counting process.
He however says a chief electoral officer, an independent consultant, found no evidence of ballot box tampering.
Van den Heever adds the electoral officers advised the groups to lodge complaints with the deputy vice-chancellor of student support but all missed the deadline.
The university says auditing firm KPMG observed the counting and is waiting for its report.
