After 10 days of campaigning and 5 days of voting, the results are in – and they were very close indeed. Congratulations to our new FXU Exeter President Izi Robe, winning by just two votes!
Izi campaigned on a manifesto encompassing various objectives, notably: transforming student voice; improving employability; equal opportunities; mental health; and increasing collaboration with Falmouth University.
When asked about the results of the election, Izi said: “I’m so surprised, overwhelmed and utterly grateful to have been voted as your next FXU President Exeter. This is a once in a lifetime opportunity and I’m going to make the most of it and work my hardest to make you all proud. Thank you.”
We look forward to having her as our President next year. Also, a very well done to those who ran in the elections and demonstrated their commitment and passion for representing us within the student community.
