Current vice-president for academic affairs, Jennine Fox, has been elected president for Lincoln Students’ Union by 12 votes.

Fox, with 554 votes in the final round, narrowly beat second place Gemma Cobby as well as six others to the £17,677 per year role.

The results were announced at the Tower Bar in the evening of Monday, March 12th.

In her winning speech, Fox said: “I’ve been involved in the union as an officer for two years, one part time and one full time. I really care about this place, I really care about the students here and I really care about taking it forward.”

Also tightly fought was the role of vice-president for welfare and diversity, in which English and Criminology student Andrew Twagira has been elected. Twagira’s 565 votes beat Emily Hill (516 votes) after two rounds of elimination.

Wes Wells and Dam Sam proved popular for the roles of vice-president for academic affairs and activities respectively.

Also elected in part time roles were Francesca Anderson and Hugh Lound (officer for students), Gooleswari Seeburn (officer for societies) and Jade Snedeker (officer for sports).

The new SU team will take up their roles over the summer.
