Four of the disqualified aspirants aspirants appeared to be resolute in the opposition against the vetting results hence taking the matter to the high court challenging the decision of the SRC electoral commission and its vetting committee to disallow them from contesting the election, a situation described as bias, attack on SRC constitution, unfair treatment being met out to them by the Electoral committee, The Dean of students, The SRC President and The SRC Judicial Committee
