The JNU administration on Thursday agreed to conduct the Jawaharlal Nehru University Students Union (JNUSU) elections this semester as a one-time arrangement. This was conveyed to the chairperson of the JNUSU Election Committee,Prabodhan Arvind Pol,by the administration.
The Rector said they have received a positive response from the Supreme Court,and the JNUSU can go ahead with the election procedure, said Prabodhan. With this,the JNUSU elections are likely to be conducted by February. An all-organisation meeting has been called on Friday,so the schedule for the JNUSU elections can be finalised without any further delay.
Elections will be conducted at the university after a gap of over four years,ever since the Supreme Court banned it for not conforming with the Lyngdoh Committee recommendations.
