Everyone fasten your seatbelts, because the full list of candidates running in the 2015 SUSU elections has been released.
If your favourite things include having your lectures hijacked and being attacked with slogans as you walk between seminars then SUSU election season is like a long, drawn out Christmas.
This year, there are fewer candidates for Sabb roles, headlined by the total absence of joke candidates on the entire ballot.
However, both new student leader positions (Charities and Community Officer and Housing Officer) have candidates, and the proportion of contested roles has risen from 78% last year to 80%.
The candidates are:
VP Democracy & Creative Industries:
VP Student Communities:
VP Sports Development:
Campaigning will start on February 20th. Voting begins on March 9th and ends at 4pm on March 13th. All of the results will be announced that night (March 13th) in Elections Night Live at The Cube.
