According to latest updates, ABVP is taking lead on all four seats with 600 votes. The Delhi University Students’ Union (DUSU) polls on Thursday witnessed a voter turnout of 40 per cent. The results will be declared by Friday afternoon. Last year, the voter turnout was 44.46 per cent.
“Votes would be counted at the Community Hall of the Police Lines in northwest Delhi’s Kingsway Camp,” DU Chief Election Officer Ashok Prasad said. There was polling for four positions of (DUSU) which ended with allegations of EVM malfunctioning.
Sixteen candidates, including 4 women, were contesting and 52 polling centres were set up for the polls. Over 144 EVMs were used for students’ union polls and 137 were used for college union polls.
