KSC Elections 2023/24: The Results


Concluding fierce competition between candidates, the 2023/24 KSC election winners were announced on Monday. After a tough competition and lots of hard work from all running candidates, the anxiety caused by uncertainty was finally eased. 

“I’m excited to do all the things I promised to do and use my position to help out at the school.” 

— Tabee Wahid

The most competitive position for the election this year was grade 9 representative. With an astounding total of thirteen running candidates, the final winners were Tabee Wahid, Amarie Xuye, and Abdullah Hussein. Encouraged by his win so soon after entering high school, Tabee says, “I feel slightly nervous but I’m excited to do all the things I promised to do and use my position to help at school.” 

Amarie adds to this, saying, “There were lots of good candidates and I was extremely nervous to hear the results. I was relieved to learn that I had won, and I loved the support that all candidates were giving each other throughout the whole process.”

A similarly competitive position was grade ten representative. Due to a tie in the votes, four grade ten representatives have been elected this year. Dulsana Epasinghe, Ahnaaf Hassan, Nadeem Khalid, and Damien Perera are the elected grade ten representatives. Positions for grade eleven and grade twelve representatives were chosen by default due to the low number of candidates. 

“I wish to use my position to represent people in my culture, no matter how small that may seem.”

— Janaharan Manoharan

Additionally, positions for secretary, senior and junior communications director, and junior/senior student senate representatives were competitive positions with at least three candidates running for each position. The secretaries for this school year are Janaharan Manoharan and Fahmida Mim. Expressing his gratitude for the people who supported him throughout the election process, Janaharan says, “I honestly can’t have done it without the support, and most of that comes from my friends… What really inspired me to run was the Tamil community at King.”

Finally, the senior senate representative is Luvina Rhaman. The elected senior communications director is Areeb Munir, and the junior communications director is Ajfra Mahi. Areeb encourages fellow peers to run for KSC positions in the future, saying, “Student council elections are a fun way to get yourself involved in the school and increase self-confidence. It is a smooth and enjoyable process and I encourage students in younger grades to run.” 

Elections for the president and vice president of the student council will take place later this month.
