A chronicle of contesting candidates is seen where they can select and elect the person they intend to cast their votes for.

The election date was finally set for the UMMESA members to elect their leaders who will be steering the affairs of the medical students for the next one year.

All members are to start casting their vote by 10:00 am on the 25th of September, 2021.

The franchise started at 10:30 am.

It started smoothly not until some challenges were encountered and later rectified. 

At the end of the election, about 1:30 pm, collation of results by the Independent Medical Electoral Commission (IMEC) chaired by Isaac Satumari, and the participants’ representative were also present at the Edington Hall of the Teaching Hospital.
