Posted on Monday 6th March 2017
Congratulations to Raz Riaz who has been named Student President, after the results of the leadership election were announced yesterday.
He will be joined by Student Trustees Philippa Iliff and Daniel Edmondson, and Joanne Jones who was selected as NUS Delegate.
In this year’s Leadership Race, ten students in total ran to represent University of Bolton Students. Five candidates ran for the position of President (Student Officer), three candidates for the position of Student Trustee and two candidates for the position of NUS Delegate.
Candidates and their teams of supporters campaigned across campus for votes, speaking to students about their pledges. Voting took place over five days across campus, in order to give more students the opportunity to vote.
Over 1030 votes were cast, more than double the votes received in the 2016 Leadership Race.
