Students of Boete Junior High School B went to the polls today to elect the new prefects for the next academic year. Most of the students, who had not had an election experience before got the opportunity to vote and elect their own prefects in a style similar to the general elections in the country.
A total of fourteen students contested for the various positions.
Keenly contested was the position of the Boys senior prefect. Samuel Kyeremanteng, who had trended online in the past few days due to his alias Alan Kash, came second behind the winner, Bright Osei Tutu by just a vote.
Yussif Haniat blew off competition from the other two contestants by pulling 91 votes out of the total 130 valid votes to win the Girls Senior Prefect.
Speaking to the Electoral Commissioner for the school, Mrs. Louisa Amoah, she said the elections were free and fair and all parties accepted the results.
The contestants all selected polling agents from their camp to represent them during the counting. The polling station officials were all students of the school who casted their votes earlier to enable them carry our their duties.
Mr. Francis Oteng, the headmaster of Boete Junior High School B told journalists that the activity has helped to introduce students to the electoral system of Ghana. This would enable them vote properly when they turn 18 and are eligible to vote at the general elections.
