Following the close of elections on Friday 25 Nov, we are pleased to announce the results for the NUS National Delegate Elections and the outcome of the random selection process of our NUS Liberation Conference Delegation.
There was a total of 184 first preference votes cast across 13 candidates.
Emma De Saram
They will be joined by Exeter Guild President, Lily Margaroli, who goes to NUS National Conference in her capacity as NUS President and identifies as a Women and as such takes our delegation to quota.
Black Delegate: Hamza Khan
Black Women Delegate: Sarah Gadalla
Disabled Delegate: Ed Barradell
LGBTQ+ Delegate: Emma De Saram
Trans Delegate: Eliza McCubbin
Women Delegate: Izzie Dyer
All Liberation Delegates represent their liberation community at Liberation Conference but are encouraged to attend any sessions for which they identify (even if they are not specifically there as that liberation delegate).
Due to NUS policy, half of our National Conference delegation is required to identify as women. As a result, one candidate was unsuccessful in the election due to the gender quota. This was calculated in the count stage where no further candidates who identified as Women could be elected to meet our quota requirements. This had no further impact on the election as this candidates' transfers were discounted at this stage.
Congratulations to those elected and selected and for those not successful in these elections, well done for being a candidate and please consider being a candidate in our upcoming Leadership Elections.
