The Students Federation of India (SFI) held their flag high at the Mahatma Gandhi University Union elections bagging 21 out of the 27 general seats, making it clear once again that their influence among the young generation is still formidable.

In spite of the troubles plaguing the parent organisation, when the results were declared on Friday evening, the SFI had won a 20th consecutive term at the MG University Students’ Union’s helm. The only upset victory was for Sony Joseph (KSU) of Sree Narayana College of Teacher Education, Muvattupuzha, who was elected one of the three vice-chairpersons. In addition, the KSU won four executive committee seats and one accounts committee seat, taking their total tally to six.

Sojimon Joy (School of International Relations and Politics) was elected chairperson earlier.

Others who have been elected to the general seats from the SFI panel are: General secretary — Anson Jose, Sree Sankara College, Kalady; Vice-chairpersons: Sheena T. Manoj, Bishop Abraham Memorial college, Pathanamthitta, and M. Ajeesh, College of Applied Sciences, Marayoor; Joint Secretaries — K.R. Renjumol, School of Gandhian Thought and Development Studies, and M.S. Ayyappa Das, St. Peter’s College, Kolencherry.

The SFI has 11 members in the executive committee and four members in the accounts committee.
