Uganda Christian University is set to conduct online guild elections where students will participate in the exercise from their respective homes.
According to Bridget Mugasira Mugume the Director of Student Affairs, all is set for the exercise that starts today with nominations which will be followed by online campaigns.
She says online elections will not only ensure students’ safety from Covid-19, but also enable the university to save the huge sums of money usually spent on normal elections.
The students are to vote using their e-mail accounts.
The Chairperson of the guild Electoral Commission Boss John Bruce has assured students of a free and fair election.
