Daily Messenger - - Metropolitan -

KARACHI: An­nual elec­tion of Sindh Madres­satul Is­lam Uni­ver­sity’s six stu­dent so­ci­eties, in­clud­ing De­bat­ing So­ci­ety, Art So­ci­ety, Com­mu­nity Ser­vice So­ci­ety, Lit­er­ary So­ci­ety, Science So­ci­ety and Sports So­ci­ety, were held on Fri­day un­der the su­per­vi­sion of Direc­torate of Stu­dents’ Af­fairs and Place­ment of SMIU. Sev­enty four can­di­dates con­tested for thirty seats (five of each so­ci­ety).

On the elec­tion day, SMIU was pre­sent­ing a look of fes­tiv­ity. All male and fe­male stu­dents were en­thu­si­as­ti­cally in­volved in the elec­tion process. Can­di­dates and their sup­port­ers had dec­o­rated the elec­tion area with panaflexes and ban­ners.

Dr M Ali Shaikh, Vice Chan­cel­lor of SMIU also ob­served the elec­tion process. On that oc­ca­sion, he said that SMIU was the only uni­ver­sity in the coun­try which since 2014, just af­ter two years of its el­e­va­tion to the level of uni­ver­sity, had given a demo­cratic right to its stu­dents to form so­ci­eties and con­duct elec­tions an­nu­ally through a trans­par­ent demo­cratic process.
