Preston wins by just 103 votes...
Ben Preston has been re-elected to the post of SU President with a majority of just 103 votes. His Deputy, Peter Quinn, was also re-elected by a majority of 248 votes.
While Mr Quinn increased his majority from last year, Mr Preston's majority took a dramatic blow. Paddy Maguire ran a close second to Mr Preston with 442 votes to 545. This will send a shot over the President's bows as it signals discontent within the student body.
Turnout was poor with only 1004 valid votes in the election for President and 972 valid votes in the contest for Deputy President . Included in both polls was 41 spolit votes and 57 votes to re-open nominations.
Do these results represent the feeling of the student body?
Is Mr Preston's position within the Union in trouble?
What will happen in this forthcoming Thursday poll for the positions of the 3 VP's? Will this result have any effect?
