New Delhi: Counting for the Delhi University students' union election will begin today, a day after the polling to elect office-bearers of the union.
The result is expected to be declared later today.
The elections were held on Friday amid tight security and there were no reports of violence.
Voting began at 8.30 am and continued till 12.30 pm for day class students while those attending evening classes exercised their franchise from 3 pm to 7 pm, officials said.
"The National Students' Union of India (NSUI) has promised that as soon as their candidates come to power, they will take initiative to abolish the FYUP (four-year undergraduate programme), a matter of concern for us," said Sameer, a first year student of Ram Lal Anand College, who had come to vote.
The contest in DUSU is between the NSUI, backed by the Congress, and the Akhil Bharatiya Vidyarthi Parishad (ABVP), the students' wing of the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh.
There are also a few candidates fielded by the All India Students Association (AISA), a radical Left group.
