Student Group Elections Results Announced

In addition to the 5 full-time executive roles and 9 part-time liberation and facticity representative roles that were democratically elected by over 5000 students in the recent elections, all 117 student societies and sports clubs also held elections to choose their leaders for the upcoming academic year of 2024/2025.

Each of our student groups is led by elected student representatives from within their respective group. These representatives work diligently to ensure that all group members have a positive and fulfilling experience. Committee members have the opportunity to have a significant impact on their groups and provide valuable experiences that can benefit them in their future careers post-university.

Students were able to rank their preferred candidates using proportional representation, the voting system utilised for all De Montfort Students Union elections. In this system, if a member's first-choice candidate did not garner enough votes in the initial round and no candidate reached the required majority of 50%+1, the member's vote would then be transferred to their second-choice candidate in hopes of securing their election. Additionally, the option of "Re-Open Nominations" was available for all roles in DSU elections, enabling voting members to request different candidates if none of the candidates on the ballot were deemed suitable.

All positions were announced during the election results night on Wednesday, March 13th. Please see below for a comprehensive list of successful candidates elected to serve as committee members for the student group in 2024/2025.

It is encouraging to see that 190 roles have been filled within the 117 groups. However, there are still 390 vacant roles that need to be filled. Therefore, a bye-election and second round of voting will be conducted in the coming weeks. This will provide student groups with a final opportunity to fill the essential core committee roles of Chairperson, Secretary, Treasurer, and Wellbeing Officer.

Since these roles are crucial for the continuity of a group into the next academic year, they will be the only positions available for filling during the upcoming bye-election. This means that not all groups will have roles up for election and can begin preparing for the next year.

Congratulations to all the winners. We encourage anyone considering participating in the bye-election to speak with the current committee for more information on the process. A complete list of all student groups can be found here.
