The provisional list of candidates running in the Glasgow University Students’ Representative Council (SRC) spring elections has been announced, with two of the four paid, full-time sabbatical positions being uncontested.
The President position is once again uncontested, as is VP Education. VP Student Support, however, has three candidates and VP Student Activities has two.
28 out of the 39 positions on offer (72%) are either unopposed or have no candidates at all. Similarly, 70% of positions last year were also unopposed or had no candidates. Of the positions that do have candidates, only 36% are contested.
The candidates for the four sabbatical positions are as follows: Scott Kirby (current VP Student Activities) for President; Liam Brady for VP Education; Yipei Wei, Tom McFerran and Iona MacLeod Hughes for VP Student Support; and Kirsty Summers and Basel Shihabi for VP Student Activities.
There are currently no candidates for several welfare and equal opportunities officer positions. Gender Equality Officer, Age Equality Officer and International Students Officer all have no candidates, and roles such as LGBTQ+ Officer and Race Equality Officer are all uncontested.
Two out of the four undergraduate convenor positions also have no candidates.
