SHILLONG, June 25: The new body of the North-Eastern Hill University Students’ Union (NEHUSU) for the year 2024-2025, which was elected on Tuesday following the declaration of results of the elections to various posts, will pursue many issues, with the marking system being predominant.
It may be noted that the election results were announced by the Returning Officer of the NEHUSU election, Davidson Pyngrope, who is also the Public Relations Officer at the NEHU.
Pynrope also informed that the taking over of charge by the newly elected NEHUSU 2024-25 body will be held at 2:30 pm on Wednesday.
Speaking to reporters after the announcement of the result, newly elected NEHUSU general secretary, Toniho S Kharsati, informed that they will pursue the issue of the marking system.
Maintaining that the marking system at NEHU is outdated, Kharsati recalled the previous body taking up this issue but not being able to take it to its logical end.
He said the NEHUSU will push the administration to review and revise the marking system in the university.
It may be mentioned that the NEHUSU had been demanding the implementation of a relative grading system as this will drastically improve the grades of the students.
Meanwhile, following the election, Sandy Sohtun (Adult Continuing Education Department, 4th semester) was elected as the new president after he defeated Kenny Kharbithai (Law Department, 10th semester) by a margin of 453 votes.
While Sohtun got a total of 1,103 votes, 650 votes were polled in favour of Kharbithai.
On the other hand, Toniho S Kharsati (Law Department, 6th semester) was elected as the new general secretary after he defeated Bantamdor Kharbhih (Political Science Department, 2nd semester) by 807 votes. Kharsati got a total of 1,286 votes as against 479 votes that were polled in favour of Kharbhih.
Similarly, Riki Deiburom Rabon (Environmental Studies Department, 2nd semester) was elected the new vice president after defeating Phibarishisha Nongbsap (Tourism and Hotel Management Department, 2nd semester) by 623 votes.
The other new office-bearers include Eva Kordor Kharshandi (assistant general secretary), Ymphaidien Sutong (finance secretary), Soki Syrti (games and sports secretary), Banskhlemlang Marwein (academic secretary), Edna Callista Kharsyntiew (social and cultural secretary), Naphisabet Marwein (public relations secretary) and Bashankur Buhroy (editor).
