See you next time? SU officers try it on again

Two of The Linc’s predictions on who will stand in this year’s University of Lincoln Students’ Union elections have been confirmed. Chris Charnley, the SU’s current president, announced on Monday that he will seek re-election as the organisation’s president.

Announcing his intention to run again, Charnley claimed to have gained a lot for students, but his claims are dubious.

In addition, Dan Derricott, currently a part-time officer, announced in December his intention to stand for the role of vice-president for education. JP Thackery, a second year media production student, will stand for a position, although nothing else is known about his candidacy.

Election packs for would-be candidates are yet to be uploaded to the SU’s website’s election page, which can be found here.
