2013 SURHUL election nominees declared

SURHUL has released the list of nominees for the upcoming elections. Competition is fiercest for the position of Vice President of Education and Welfare, though 10 other positions, comprising the large majority of the Executive Committee, are going uncontested.

Incumbents Jamie Green (VPComCam) and Ian Stewart (VPSA) will be campaigning to retain their current Sabbatical positions, though Stewart will be up against four other candidates (Angus Wyatt, Elizabeth Scott-Wilson, Gareth Berry and Temitayo Awoniyi), and Green will be fighting on two fronts as he also campaigns for ULU Campaigns and Activist Development Officer.

After last year’s uncontested election, The Orbital editorship is being fought between its current Deputy Editor, Alex Pegler, its Lifestyle Editor Simon Rawlings, and its Comment Editor Stephen Atkinson. Orbital Editor Shambolic Ninja Penguin (The Editor Formerly Known As Julian Farmer), is hoping to move outlet, running for head of Insanity against Archie Macleod.

Campaigning officially begins Friday 1st March, and the elections will take place on March 7th and 8th. Over the next fortnight The Founder will be providing coverage of as many candidates as possible.
