We call to announce full results of London Student Editor election
We, the undersigned, call for the release of the full London Student Editor election results. The London Student Editorial Team is dismayed at the recent decision by the ULU Elections Committee to annul the results of the London Student Editor election, and instead ULU Senate will decide the result in an emergency meeting scheduled for Friday 22nd March. This year’s ULU elections saw the largest turnout on record, with over 2200 students voting for their choice of full-time and part-time officers for the academic year 2013/14. The idea that 12-20 elected sabbaticals are to veto students' votes and decide amongst themselves is an attack on democracy and the editorial independence of London Student Students are not stupid, easily misled, or unable to think for themselves. Most make informed decisions about who to vote for, and their democratic decision cannot be brushed aside. We call for the results of the Editor election to be announced and be binding, as with every other election. All the election candidates were covered by London Student in the same way, and were announced on time. London Student’s Editor election cannot be singled-out, brought in-house and decided upon away from students.
