The full list of candidates and their manifestos have now been made public.

The University of Leicester Student’s Union has released the full list of candidates for this year’s executive elections. A total of thirty-one students are running for one of six categories. These include: President, Education Officer, Activities Officer, Wellbeing Officer, Equality and Liberation Officer, and Sports Officer.

High on the agenda are issues concerning equality, inclusivity, LGBT+, employability, retail options and mental health. Candidates are particularly keen to bolster representation amongst the student-base to create positive awareness of these issues, as well as many more.

Voting takes place 19-22 February.
