NUS Referendum Result

NUS Referendum Result

The result of the NUS Disaffiliation referendum is below:

57- Yes (UNSU should disaffiliate from NUS)

62- No (UNSU should not disaffiliate from NUS)

0- Abstain (I would like to abstain from voting)


The motion for UNSU to disaffiliate from the National Union of Students has therefore fallen for two reasons:

  1. The required turnout for a valid election (148 votes) has not been met

  2. The required threshold for the motion to pass (two-thirds majority) has not been met
