“The votes have been counted and verified and the collective truth from UEA’s student body has been determined. I want to thank everyone in the campaign teams, the staff and volunteers who have helped in the process, and the students who voted for their energy and enthusiasm in making this election the biggest in our history. New Part Time officers will take up post after Easter and the new Full Time Officers in the Summer. Bye-Elections for unfilled positions will take place next term.”
