The Election Liaison Committee, the body overseeing the Student Representative Council elections, will investigate the school president election in the School of Nursing and Midwifery. According to the final vote count, there was one vote for Re-opening nominations and none for the only candidate, Ashleigh Cooke.
“Due to the unusual nature of the result in the School of Nursing and Midwifery, the issue will be investigated by the ELC. We already have a meeting scheduled on Monday and this will be added as a priority item to the agenda,” DUSA president Iain MacKinnon said on election night.
DUSA Media has asked Ashleigh Cooke for comment but didn’t immediately hear back. We’ll update this item once she gets back to us.
Update: In an email to DUSA Media, Ashley said: “[M]y friends tried to vote for me but were unable to vote. [The system] kept saying that the page was unavailable to them.”
