After three days of speeches, pitches, and promises the student body has spoken.
The election has concluded with the announcement of a new SAITSA Executive Council.
The voting process allowed students to access the polls through an online link to make their voices heard. Voting numbers were up this year from previous elections due to the increase in the number of candidates and the amount of campaigning that took place around the campus seeing a 16.8 per cent involvement.
The results have placed fourth year business student Gar Gar as the SAITSA’s new president. Mikayla Schaffer took the V.P External Position, Alex Dimopoulas grabbed the position of V.P for Academics, while Connor Goodfellow will act as the new V.P for student life.
The newly elected Executive Council will look to develop future programming for new and returning students entering the 2016-2017 academic year, continuing with SAITSA’s mission to provide a community that allows students to feel inspired by learning, leading, and being exceptional.
