Alfred Torsu was one of the aspirants contesting the position of the treasure but was disqualified after making a C+ during the vetting held in the SRC Union building. The electoral commissioner after taking office changed the pass mark for qualifying from vetting from 60% to 70%. According to him, the decision to move the pass mark up was taken to make sure that the best possible candidates contest this year’s SRC election.
Alfred Torsu is a level 300 student of university of Ghana city campus but was allowed to contest the SRC election because of the five years strategic plans of the SRC that allows students from both City campus and Distance department to contest in the main election. Unfortunately, he fell short of the 70% pass mark set by the electoral commissioner Rexford Opare.
