As with any election, especially one taking place in Queen's Student's Union, there were a few incidents of note. Bebo reared its ugly head yet again with allegations of slander between fellow candidates - although the situation was resolved before voting took place.
One of the candidates is alleged to have, in a desperate plea to students hard at work, climbed on top of a table in the computer science library and urged everyone to put their pens down and vote...it clearly wasn't a forceful enough persuausion tool as said candidate failed to be elected.
The post-election drama continued with a successful candidate deliberately thanking only one of their two opponents for a 'fair' campaign in a telling acceptance speech.
With the Windel report threatening a huge shake-up in the Union, these could be the last non-sabbaticals to fill the roles as they've traditionally been known for years. As always the coming academic year will prove whether the elected persons will do practical work for the students at Queen's or if their manifestoes were simply false promises...
