Voting closed at 2pm this afternoon and the results of our Student By-election were announced by Returning Officer, Anne McDonald from NUS Scotland, on Union Way this afternoon.
This year saw a turnout of 826, setting a new RGU record for a November By-election.
Congratulations to each of our winners, and thank you to all candidates for their fantastic efforts and enthusiasm while taking part in this year's Student By-elections.
* in the event of a tied result, the Election Regulations state that "the candidate with the highest number of first preferences shall be deemed the winner. If these are tied a coin toss shall decide the Election outcome". In this instance, a coin toss took place and Osama Irfan was elected.
