Controversial Women’s Officer candidate Kirk Sneade has withdrawn his candidacy less than 24 hours ahead of voting closing.In an email sent to UCL media outlets, current Democracy and Communications Officer Sam Gaus said:
Sources told Pi that Sneade was called in to see the UCL Dean of Students yesterday, suggesting that this may have had something to do with his withdrawal from the elections. Sneade’s candidacy has been mired in controversy since the start of elections fortnight, with news of his running reaching much further than just UCL. There are now two remaining candidates in the running for Women’s Officer: Beth Sutton and Helen Chandler-Wilde. Voting closes at midday tomorrow.
