The KSU Elections are In Motion… What’s Next?

Posted On April 23, 2020

The biggest event for the University of Malta’s student body is KSU Elections. Up until a few days ago, it must have passed everyone’s mind at least once – will KSU be having its AGM? Will it be postponed? Or will the AGM happen a bit after Fresher’s Week?

Third Eye announced that they had spoken to KSU President, William Farrugia, regarding the issue and confirmed that the AGM is still going to be held online and as soon as possible. Since an AGM is going to be held, the election is on.

KSU confirmed moments ago that the AGM will be held on the 30th of April at noon however the online transmission will be available at 11:30 to enter the video call. Nominations are going to be open 48 hours before the start of the AGM.

Last year’s elections did not occur due to SDM having the only remaining candidates left in the elections. However, what will this year’s elections look like?

Kris Bajada announced on Facebook that “I am pleased to officially announce that my campaign is no longer on hold and I shall be contesting the upcoming KSU elections as an Independent candidate; free from the constraints of Party Politics.” He continued to state how he will be implementing new proposals in his manifesto regarding post COVID-19 measures for students.

SDM also announced that “Once again, SDM shall be presenting a strong team of candidates hailing from different areas of University, ensuring a broad representation of all students” via their Facebook page.

Pulse did state last year that they would not be contesting in the KSU elections for the next two elections which would mean that they are not going to be participating this year. SDM still has to announce its fresh team of candidates. Therefore, the elections are between independent Kris Bajada for KSU President along with SDM’s strong force.

Let’s see who will win! Make sure to vote for the candidates you think are best suitable to represent you in KSU!

Stay tuned for more news!
