The candidates for the YUSU Elections have been announced.
Campaigning is still a week away, beginning on Monday week seven (February 18), and voting will be open from Monday to Friday of week eight (February 25 – March 1).
Meanwhile, Nouse has started an elections blog, Yusu Yak, for all the elections gossip and analysis.
The candidates will be congregating in YourSpace on Wednesday for their first ‘bootcamp’, where they will be given advice and guidance, as well as having all the campaign rules explained to them. In previous years, campaigning before the allotted start date has led to sanctions for candidates.
There will be a debate for candidates for full time officer positions on Tuesday February 19 at 7.15pm, however the venue has not been announced.
The full candidate list is as follows:
York Sport President
Student Activities Officer
Madeline Boden & Conor Roche
