VeSte (United Students) has clinched nine seats in an overwhelming victory at the student council elections. The PSF (Progressive Student Party) manages to gain only three of the twelve seats for the next academic year.
The leader of VeSte, Erwin Hofman, received 187 preferential votes. 'This is a resounding victory. We are absolutely delighted and are roaring to go', was how Hofman reacted right after the results were made known. Ewoud Nijhof, number one on the PSF list, said that he was pleased too. 'Three seats is the minimum, and we can get things going with that. We have a good team and will try very hard to make a comeback next year.'
