After the farce of the previous election for the Chair of the Graduate Students Association, which achieved a turn-out barely into double figures, the re-run has now finished with over one hundred votes.
At the close of nominations Jon Matthews was the only candidate, winning the election with 58 votes to 42 against RON. Abstentions increased the overall turnout to 111, nearly ten times higher than the first election.
A decision made last year means the GSA chair will move into the office of the Deputy President (Finance & Services), the same one Jon Matthews occupied last year. The office will this time be shared with the member of staff brought in to assist with representation as part of the GSA-restructuring.
