YUSU President nominations open

YUSU PRESIDENT Kallum Taylor has encouraged all students to participate in the upcoming YUSU elections, telling Vision of the need to have a more diverse cross section of the student community participating in the campaign.

“This year we really want to see just more than the ‘usual suspects’ in the election and get candidates from different backgrounds, like Health Sciences students and postgraduates.

“It’s a real shame that last year only 28% of our candidates were women, and we really want to improve that this year!”

Nominations for candidates close on Friday week four, while the Full time Officers debate, which will be hosted by FA Chairman Greg Dyke, will take place on the 18th with voting opening on the 24th.
