Michael Wigg, SU Returning Officer, gave the following statement: ‘The SU elections were run in difficult circumstances this year with campus reflecting rather than looking at what candidates would be doing in the future. I would suggest that now more than ever UEA needs the togetherness that Students’ Unions offer and so thank you to everyone who got involved in the elections. Thank you to the candidates who ran excellent campaigns – it was truly a pleasure to act as the Returning Officer on this election.’
