*STUDENTS' UNION ELECTION DATES UPDATE!*
We have had some serious discussions within the office over the past few days about the election dates. The original planned dates meant that candidates meetings, hustings and election results would have fallen on strike days. As such we have moved the dates specifically so that meetings, voting & hustings will not be on strike days.
This decision has been voted on by the Students' Union executive committee - the minutes of that meeting will be uploaded onto the soasunion.org website soon. We are aware this situation is not ideal, the dates were chosen while trying to take into consideration candidates wellbeing & time constraints. There will be a concerted effort to promote elections online, including filming hustings, and coverage in the online version of the SOAS Spirit.
