Elections

The Students' Representative Council (SRC) and Faculty Council elections are governed by the Election Regulations that were approved by the UCT Council in 2013 and amended in 2016.

The Election Regulations provide for the Election Commission, as an independent and impartial body, to oversee and govern the SRC and Faculty Council elections or by-elections in a free and fair manner.

The Election Operations Office is the administrative branch of the Election Commission that, under the supervision of the Election Commission and in accordance with the Election Regulations, run the SRC and Faculty Council elections from a logistical and administrative stand point.
