The much awaited results of the student elections being held in the University of Hyderabad (UOH) is expected to be declared on Tuesday, after various student organisations and the university administration came into a consensus amidst allegations of rigging.

The university authorities confirmed that re-counting for the posts of the general secretary and president of the students union will be done on Tuesday morning. The counting for the remaining four posts, however, will continue without recounting. “The vice-chancellor has appointed directing officers for the election process to go on smoothly. We will resume the counting on Tuesday morning at 11 am, and it is expected to be done by 2 pm,” dean of students welfare BV Sharma confirmed.

On Thursday, around 3,313 students cast their vote, for which counting had started on Friday. But due to alleged increase in the number of invalid votes, representatives of ABVP had raised questions on the rules and regulations being followed for deciding invalidation of votes.

A grievance committee meeting was arranged on Saturday where representatives of student organisations had submitted their take on the issue. The committee then took a call to go for recounting of the two posts after taking all groups into consideration.
