Rohtak, November 24

Two candidates, who were locked in a tie by securing 277 votes each in the annual polls held yesterday, will now share the tenure of the president of Maharshi Dayanand University (MDU) Non-Teaching Employees’ Association for six months each as the Returning Officer (RO) ,Rahul Rishi, today decided to give both — Sumer Ahlawat and Kulwant Malik — a chance to work on the top post on a rotation basis instead of declaring any of them winner in the election.

Sources said the RO held a meeting with both candidates and their supporters at the Registrar office at the university in the morning. He invited suggestions from the candidates to find out an amicable formula to declare the winner. Both candidates then collectively agreed on a six-month term each for serving as the president stating that they didn’t want to see any of them losing the election by adopting a lucky draw system.

“Since both candidates were happy to get six-month terms each, hence I asked them to decide, who will serve first as the president. Thereafter, they mutually consented on giving the first term to Sumer Ahlawat upto May 10, 2022 while Malik will hold the position from May 11 to October 31, 2022,” said the RO, adding that they have also been advised to make a provision in the association’s constitution to declare the winner if two candidates were locked in a tie on any post in the polls.
