Salient: Victoria University Students' Paper. Vol. 28, No. 9. 1965.

Election Policies

Election Policies

Sirs, Although I realise that you may no longer be associated with Salient next time Students' Association Elections are held (unless a motion of no confidence in our newly-elected Exec. is passed during the year), may I suggest that in future, to ensure the equal responsibility to the student body of those Exec. members who get in unopposed, that their policy statements and photographs be published along with those seeking election, in the Salient election issue.

One oft-heard complaint about Exec. is "I don't know any of them,'' If the unopposed members of that select body at least had a policy statement published, and perhaps gave a short policy statement at the Candidates' meeting, then they might be better known. They might also then be open to pressure to do something or anything they had promised—or even feel morally bound to carry out their stated policies, or justify their actions in the light of promises they had made.
