JNUSU Polls: Candidates List Declared, AISF Not To Contest

The time has come when every party is pulling up their socks to win the elections. The hustle bustle has already been started and everyone is in full swing as and when we are moving inch by inch closer to the Jawaharlal Nehru University Students’ Union polls. The recent development is that the list of candidates contesting elections this year for JNUSU polls has been released.

The candidates of Left Unity in Central Panel are Mohit Kumar Pandey from AISA  for the post of President , Amal P P from SFI for Vice President post, Satarpura Chakrobarty from SFI for General Secretary post and Tabrez Hassan from AISA for the post of Joint Secretary post.

As a shock to all, All India Students Federation (AISF), of which sedition accused Kanhaiya Kumar is a member, is not contesting JNU student Union polls this year for which the final list of candidates was declared today. This year, AISF which is the student wing of the Communist Party of India (CPI) has decided to offer internal support to the alliance of All India Student Association (AISA) and Student Federation of India (SFI).

This is for the first time that AISA, the student wing of Communist Party of India (Marxist A–Leninist) and SFI have formed an alliance for JNU polls which has been named as “Left Unity”. Students Front for Swaraj (SFS), the student wing of AAP’s breakaway group Swaraj Abhiyan, has also fielded its candidates for the four crucial central panel posts in JNU for the first time. The polling will be held on September 9 and the counting of votes will begin on the same night.
