DUSU Election Result 2018 Highlights: The results of the Delhi University Students’ Union elections are out. ABVP’s Ankiv Basoya, Shakti Singh and Jyoti Choudhary have won the posts of president, vice president and joint secretary respectively. The secretary post went to NSUI candidate Akash Choudhary.

The counting day remained in the middle of news for all the wrong reasons as some contesting outfits complained about faulty EVM’s. The counting, which began at 8 AM on Thursday, was suspended after members of NSUI and CYSS complained about EVM malfunction in some stations. The counting resumed following the contesting parties mutually agreed to take the process forward.

A member of the RSS-affiliated Akhil Bharatiya Vidyarthi Parishad (ABVP) said the election results will help the general public and the media to draw a conclusion on the mood of voters and also give an idea of what is the trend in national politics, reported PTI.
