RON has reared his ugly head once again in Oxford JCR elections. Last week, the ubiquitous but eternally silent candidate stormed to victory in the Presidential elections at St Hugh’s. Dominic Curran resigned as JCR president two week ago as he struggled to cope with the twin demands of student politics and Physics finals. A new election was subsequently called, in which Joe Taylor, who had challenged Curran in the original contest, was the only candidate. Taylor, a second-year medic, is also Co-Chair of the Oxford University Labour Club. 25% of students turned out for the election. RON won 118 votes against Taylor’s 96. “I understand that members of the JCR committee campaigned for RON,” Taylor said, “but I can’t say what effect that actually had on the voting.” He noted that some students had concerns about his close links to the Labour party and the implications for the impartiality of the JCR. Chris Farmer, the External Affairs Officer on the JCR said, “There was definitely not a RON campaign led by members of the JCR committee. We were all very surprised by the outcome.” Following RON’s shock resignation, the position of president is vacant once more. Both Taylor and Farmer expressed a desire that the JCR find a new president and “settle down and get on with it.”ARCHIVE: 4th week TT 2004
