Chattogram University authorities have decided in principle to hold elections to CU Central Students’ Union and hall unions after around three decades.
CU vice-chancellor Iftekhar Uddin Chowdhury confirmed the decision after a meeting with provosts and proctorial body at his office on Wednesday.
‘The date for the elections will be finalised after due procedure,’ the VC told reporters adding, ‘A committee will be formed on Thursday to update the decades-old CUCSU polls guidelines.’
Like DUCSU, the last CUCSU election was held in 1990 when Nazim Uddin was elected its vice-president and Azim Uddin general secretary. Different student organisations have long been demanding CUCSU election.
The demand drew much attention when Dhaka University held the elections to DUCSU and its hall unions on March 11, 2019.
