Salient: Victoria University Students' Paper. Vol. 30, No. 5. 1967.
Two current executive members will battle for secretary. They are Cultural Affairs Officer Larry Stenswick and Sports Officer Geoff Rashbrooke.
Mr. Rashbrooke says he was the originator of the scheme to promote the influx of presidential candidates. Some students told Salient that they feel this has inpeded his chances of becoming secretary.
Voters will not be faced with the onerous task of listing all candidates in order of preference. The constitution requires that preference be indicated for "not more than four (4) of the candidates.
Only where a candidate fails to secure more first preference votes than half the number of first preference votes cast, do the preference provisions come into effect.
Despite the large number of candidates, an election supplement will be published. The usual type of publication would cost the Students Association about £200. Funds to this extent are not available so that the supplement will most likely take the form of cyclostyled sheets.
