Eight candidates have withdrawn from the Students’ Union (SU) Elections 2015. There are now 60 candidates.
Sebastian Glen, was running for SU President; Sophie Evans, who was running for SU Equal Opportunities and Welfare Officer; Zoe Adeniyi, who was running for SU BME Officer; Rebecca Hunt, who was running for SU Women’s Officer; Venu Katta, who was running for SU President; Christina Zygakis, who was running for SU International Officer; and Theodora Bakare, who was running for SU BME Officer, have withdrawn from this year’s SU Elections. The latest candidate to withdraw is Lina Zhang, who was running for SU BME Officer.
Zoe Adeniyi, former SU BME Officer candidate, told Impact: “I denominated myself because I got the opportunity to study abroad next year. I did not think I could fully commit to the role and do an amazing job as BME officer whilst being abroad for a semester”.
The list of candidates has therefore been amended as follows:

S. Wallace (djYB)
Equal Opportunities and Welfare Officer:
Anjuli ‘Angel’ R K S
