The secretary also informed that until and unless a college was not duly notified by the federal government as de-recognised, its faculty would be eligible voters subject to their valid faculty registration.
“The recommendation of the PMDC regarding any institution for approval or closure shall have no legality until the same is not notified by the federal government.”
All faculty members need to be registered as RMP/RDP for eligibility to be a faculty member. Therefore, the registered faculty members were eligible to cast only one vote either for RMP/RDP candidates or for registered faculty members.
“Every voter can cast his or her vote according to the permanent or temporary address given in their registration in the PMDC record.”
