The Student Federation of the University of Ottawa (SFUO) has posted the unofficial results of the election and healthcare referendum. The results were posted on the SFUO’s Facebook page on Oct. 24 and 27, respectively.
Romeo Ahimakin was elected as vice-president of services and communications, with 1012 votes compared to 272 for Melanie Malo and 208 for CT Larochelle.
Camelia Touzany was elected to be the new vice-president of finance with 1106 votes, while Nick Robinson got 329.
Sole presidential candidate Anne-Emilie Hebert* is running in a secondary “yes/no” election to be held on Nov. 9 and 10.
The healthcare referendum was defeated with 801 no votes and 737 yes votes.
“I strongly believe that most of those who voted ‘no’ did so based on a lack of information,” said Siavash Ghazvinian of the referendum’s yes committee.
“I don’t know what the future of the health plan will be for students, but I am holding out hope that some action can be taken this Winter to save the health plan,” said Ghazvinian.
The SFUO has not announced when official results will be posted.
*In a previous edition of the Fulcrum we wrote, “In the SFUO by-election, Anne-Emilie Hebert, who ran unopposed, was named president.” Anne-Emilie Hebert was not named president on either the SFUO website or Facebook Page. She is running in a secondary “yes/no” election on Nov. 9 and 10. We sincerely regret the error.
