Student Council wins Board election in landslide

The Student Council's top candidate Elias Westergaard was elected to the University's Board with 1,480 votes. 15.5 per cent of students voted

Elias Westergaard from the Student Council will be the new Board member at the University of Copenhagen. This is after winning what could be described as a landslide victory in the recent university elections, where he received 1,480 votes. He will replace one of the two student members, Søren Axel Petersen, who could not seek re-election after two years in office.

Frit Forum fielded three leading candidates: Aslak Schou got 63 personal votes, Niels Havndrup Kraaer got 49, and Julie Weile Larsen got 36 votes.

Jacob Stendevad the top candidate for Conservative Students got 49 votes.

Beat Thorvaldsen’s vote count

With a personal vote count of 1,480 Elias Westergaard just surpassed Alexander Thorvaldsen, who was elected with 1,467 votes last year. Law students Gwen Grüner-Widding still has the record with 1,731 personal student votes in 2013.

President of the election statute committee Professor, Doctor of Law. Jesper Lau Hansen reads the election results. On two occasions he had to draw lots to find a 1st and 2nd substitute member.

This year’s turnout ended up at 15.5 per cent compared to 20 per cent last year. A total of 6,334 students voted.

Victory for academic council work

Elias Westergaard welcomes the election results, which he says is a victory for the organized student work that the Student Council stands for.

“We won because we are doing a real piece of work in the academic councils where we meet and discuss the problems at UCPH and try to make this university better for students,” he says.

He calls on the Frit Forum and Conservative Students to seek influence through the academic councils of the individual study programmes.
