Final Student Judicial Board (SJB) election results have been delayed until November 21, when there will be a run-off between two candidates who tied with an equal number of votes for the fifth seat.
Twenty-three candidates contested five seats in the November 11 election.
Ahmed Dafrawy won 1015 votes; Zeina Haggrass; 980; Amr Abaza, 878; and Mohamed Faragg won 732 votes.
Amr Abdel Wahab and Mohamed Seif won votes that were too close to call – 697 and 684, respectively.
“Over the years, AUCians have proven and are driven by their strength to back up what is clearly ethical, correct, and justified. Their debates are largely based on knowledge and awareness, and part emotion – that too is good to have; hence, at the end AUC students will elect only those assessed as best qualified to serve,” Hagrass said prior to the vote.
SJB elections are traditionally held nine weeks into the semester as the members’ terms begin on the first day after the end of the fall semester of each year.
This board is the only judicial authority of the General Assembly (student body) which is working on implementing a social behavior code throughout campus.
In collaboration with the Office of Student Development, the SJB is also responsible for monitoring the financial security of the SU’s financial transactions, and governing the relationship between clubs, conferences, activities and so on.
