The Vice-Chancellor, however, promised the administration’s support to the Union to enable her to contribute in creating an environment condusive for students to focus on their studies as overidding goal. The new UBSU president, Mr. Nemkul Lackbuin Samuel a post graduate student in the Faculty of Arts, promised to use dialogue in preference while treating with the administration.

Students voted under the Yellow, White and Red lists with the Yellow winning by 1314 votes ,the White were the second runners up with 1154 votes while the Red list had only 300 votes. The head of the White list, Mr. Epizitone Kalle Dante and the Deputy of the Red list, Mr. Nelson A. Mbongaya recognized the election as being transparent and have promised their support to the newly installed executive. To the Director of Students Affairs Dr. Ludwig Metuge, the elections were more participatory and democratic this time.
