Student Council to be Elected

No ratings yet. Log in to rate.

For the first time since it’s reform all Students Council positions will be elected during a mini election week in October. The election for delegates to the National Union of Students Conference will take place at the same time.

When we consulted you last year 89% of students said it was important for the Union to be student led and 76% of you said that you valued our democracy. When we launched the Union plan we said that we wanted to make more decisions made by you hence our decision to make students council an elected body again.

For Union President Ben France the decision to elect is a natural progression “the election process creates a fair and thorough system for each student council position, encouraging all students to take part in healthy debate”.

New positions to be elected for the first time are a Rep for each of our Faculties.

Anybody wishing to stand will have to submit their form through the ChesterSU website by 5 p.m. on Friday 19th October with voting taking place on the 24th and 25th October. The nomination form will not be available until term starts but if you are interested and fancy a chat please contact us at any time. If you know someone who you think would make a great rep there will be an anonymous form for you to submit and we will contact them on your behalf.

Candidates for International, BAME, LGBTQ+, Women, Visible Disabilities, and Invisible Disabilities will be asked to self-declare as a member of that community.
