The UCSRC election polls have officially closed, with a new committee being announced at the end of Week 7. The official results were announced on Thursday, after a busy election period.

The new representatives for the Student Representative Council are as follows:

Faculty of Business Government and Law: Courtney Green

Faculty of Arts and Design: Amannda Huot

Faculty of Health: Nathan de Meillon

Faculty of Science and Technology: Shane Parnell

Ngunnawal Centre: Charmaine Brown

University of Canberra College: Liam Luo

The Faculty of Education remains unrepresented, as it did not have any candidates.

According to Acting Returning Officer Ms. Helen Vooren, the elections were particularly successful this year.

“I can declare that the elections were conducted in accordance with the election procedures and based on my assessment of the processes and results, I can declare this was a free and fair election. Under Section 16.7 of the SRC Election Procedures, I now publish the final vote count for each electorate,” she said.

“It was pleasing to note higher levels of interest and increased student participation for this election across the University. This is a higher turnout than the November 2016 election (6%) and comparable with the 2017 Council elections (8%).”
