DA wins Tukkies SRC Presidency
02 September 2015
The Democratic Alliance is thrilled to note the election of DA Students’ Organisation candidate Kwena Moloto to the Presidency of the University of Pretoria SRC.
The DA welcomes this affirmation from the Tukkies student body of the DA’s proposition for better student governance. This comes after DASO equally swept to victory at the University of Fort Hare, and now governs the SRC there.
There is a groundswell of support for the DA among the youth of Tshwane, and this election on the U.P. campus is evidence of our support growing day by day.
The DA also welcomes the election of a further four DA Students’ Organisation candidates to the Tukkies SRC today. Although the vote is not yet counted for two outstanding SRC seats, with five seats already won by the DA we are conclusively the largest party represented on the 2015/2016 SRC.
The momentum from this Tukkies election bodes well for the DA’s efforts to win the City of Tshwane in next year’s local government election.
The DA is set on winning Tshwane in 2016 to restore service delivery, to create jobs and to entrench freedom, fairness and opportunity for all.
