Borja Sordo, Guilds' under-performing Vice President (Activities), has withdrawn from his course in EEE, bringing his time as VPA to an end two months early. Sordo told Live! he had not been enjoying his course and will be seeking to start again in the Department of Materials.
A consequence of his withdrawal is his likely removal from student status until the start of his new course and hence as a full member of Imperial College Union. This means not only the end of the VPA, but also that he will be unable to take up the position of sports officer in August. The impact on Guilds is expected to be minimal, as most of the VPA role has been taken on by Honorary Secretary Nick Simpson during the year.
The future of the Vice President (Finance & Societies) is also in doubt after he failed to submit a budget on time, with ICU Exec demanding some form of punishment in exchange for awarding Guilds money for next year. A motion of no-confidence will be heard at the Guilds Exec meeting next Tuesday, where welfare officer Emma Persky may also face the chop.
