The Independent candidates reached a decision on the division of the seats in the student council next year. Their conclusion puts an end to the uncertainty that arose after the announcement of the election results on the 28th of May.
Whether or not Gilbert takes his spot in the student council next year is yet unclear, he says. There are some technical issues which need to be solved first, one of them being his scholarship. 'This to me is a tricky situation, because I am not sure if my sponsor will allow me to take a year off to serve in the student council. I have to make a good case, so they can see through my arguments that the student council is a positive step for me building up my leadership and other political skills.' Gilbert hopes to give a decisive answer to his fellow student council members soon.
This week the Independent Members and Veste discussed the different committees within the council, and who will work on which topics.
