 Makerere University Council on Monday, 1st  March 2021 received a demonstration of the e-voting system ahead of the institution’s guild elections. If approved by the university council, Makerere University will have no option but to hold virtual elections due to the outbreak of COVID-19.

“Management has received a demonstration of the e-voting system for the Makerere University Students Guild elections. The e-voting will take place after approval of the guidelines on e-voting by Makerere University Council.” A source told this website.

Given the fact that Makerere students will be studying in a staggered manner, it will not be possible for all scholars to be on campus at the same time to vote for their leaders. The university’s aspiring student leaders are expected to hold virtual campaigns on social media and television stations, just like what Kyambogo University is planning.

On polling day, voters will use their students’ portal to vote for their preferred leaders following a set of guidelines expected to be issued by the university’s electoral commission.

Makerere University students were unable to vote for guild leaders last year following the closure of universities in a bid to slow the spread of COVID-19. Their outgoing Guild President Julius Kateregga, whose term expired was replaced with Ezra Byakutangaza as the Acting Guild President.
