Why must I participate in the student council elections?

A competent student council (SRC):

  1. Communicates with students and is aware of the latest developments;
  2. Addresses complaints received from students;
  3. Avoids political coaxing and does what is really in the interests of students;
  4. Prevents a small group of anarchists from speaking on behalf of all students;
  5. Takes the opinions of students into consideration during decision making and does not rely on their own opinion only;
  6. Doesn’t allow itself to be dictated by management;
  7. Attempts to keep the students happy, not management;
  8. Speaks on your behalf at the council and senate;
  9. Doesn’t hesitate to approach the courts in order to protect the rights of students.

Vote for a student council (SRC) if you are fed up with:

  1. Violence on campus;
  2. A small group of anarchists that apparently speaks on your behalf;
  3. An SRC that doesn’t listen to students;
  4. An SRC that doesn’t take any action with regards to the complaints of students;
  5. An SRC that takes decisions without considering the opinions of students;
  6. An SRC that only attempts to keep political parties happy;
  7. An SRC that is more interested in keeping management happy rather than students;
  8. An SRC that doesn’t act on behalf of students, but rather allows itself to be dictated by management;
  9. An SRC that is too scared and isolated to approach the courts if deemed necessary;
  10. An SRC that gives way to intimidation.
