Subject: 2020/2021 SRC Elections
Date: 23rd October 2020
EXTENSION OF THE SRC 2019/ 2020 TERM OF OFFICE
In terms of Chapter 12, Section 67, subsection (7) of the SMU University Statute, the term of office of the current SRC expired on 13th October 2020. The above provision of the statute notwithstanding, and after considering a number of factors, including the disruptions to university operations due to COVID-19 pandemic, and the imperative to hold the SRC elections as soon as reasonably possible, I have determined that the 2019/2020 SRC’s term of office be extended by another six weeks to end on 4th December 2020. This is to allow Management, working closely with the SRC, to finalise as soon as practicable, the date of the 2020/2021 SRC elections and the attendant election timetable. I wish to thank the SRC for their commitment and devotion to serve the University in this capacity, beyond their term of office.
2020/2021 SRC DATE OF ELECTION
After consultation with the SRC Executive as provided for in the SRC Constitution, I have determined that the 2020/2021 SRC elections will be held on two days from 23rd – 24th November 2020 and, in this regard, a detailed SRC election schedule will soon be published.
