The EFF Student Command (EFFSC) has claimed an overwhelming victory during the Student Representative Council (SRC) election at the University of the Free State (UFS) Bloemfontein campus.
All EFFSC candidates won against the ANC aligned student formation, the South African Student Congress Organisation (SASCO), and independent candidates.
According to results, every EFFSC candidate secured over 50% against their rivals during the elections, which were held on Friday.
The EFFSC SRC president candidate, Jerry Thoka, managed to garner over 5000 votes while his SASCO rival, Kamohelo Seleka, could only manage to secure over 1000 votes.
Loretta Masito, also from the EFFSC, will be Thoka's deputy SRC president after securing 5563 votes against SASCO's Esona Yapi who scored 2116 votes.
This comes a few weeks after the Fees Must Fall protest at the campus, which resulted in the arrests of 25 students.
