International Affairs Officer

Richard Chan

(Second year law.)

I am standing for this office because it is one of the most disused on exec. There is reason to believe that very few students know of the existence of this office, and even less students could name the past and present holder.

The democratic process allows all people to be equally represented. The international affairs office was created as much to represent the overseas students as to mouth protests. This function is not adequately fulfilled at the present. It is the duty of an officer to make known his policies and views and to put them into action. There is a vital difference between holding office and working in the office. I propose to do both.
