Watch Stephanie Lloyd Beth Button take part in NUS Wales Deputy Presidential hustings.

The vote for Beth was 60 of a total of 80 votes, with re-open nominations taking the other 20 votes. There were no spoilt ballots.

Beth will join NUS Wales on 1 July to take the position left vacant by current deputy president Raechel Mattey. She comes from Cardiff University, where is serving out a year as the students’ union’s education officer.

You can read Beth’s manifesto, or listen to her talking about her plans for her first year as NUS Wales deputy president:

Who are the student delegates who elect NUS Wales leadership?

Every member students’ union in Wales is entitled to send delegates to NUS Wales Conference. The number varies depending on the number of students attending the institution.

For example, universities and colleges with more students can send more delegates to vote. All of our 26 members students’ unions in Wales need to democratically elect the students they send to Conference.

These students then democratically vote on who NUS Wales leaders should be and the policy that NUS Wales should adopt for the year ahead.
