JCR elections re-poll at New

first_imgNew College has become mired in controversy following allegations of fraud and vote-rigging in the recent JCR presidential elections. It has been alleged that forged signatures and misuse of proxy votes have affected the election’s outcome. The results of the elections, held on Monday, have been discarded and re-polling is to occur today. This follows the discovery that proxy votes had been submitted after the 9am deadline, with some votes alleged to be fraudulent with intention of influencing the winner of the election. New College JCR constitution dictates that proxy votes, balloted by students voting on behalf of others, are to be submitted in writing before 9am on the day of the election. Returning officer David Snower has admitted in a JCR email that he failed to implement the constitution. He said, “As returning officer I take full responsibility for not clarifying the rules concerning proxy votes to the people on the ballot box.” The results were announced at 10.30pm on Monday night with Matthew Ranger emerging as the President-Elect, with 92 votes, and Stephen McGlynn coming a close second with 88 votes. However, allegations of fraudulent voting shortly followed these results. One member of the New College JCR, who wished to remain anonymous, said, “It seems the fraudsters cast a significant amount of proxy votes on behalf of people who didn’t intend to vote. This occurred on the actual day of the election, which is not allowed under our constitution… Soon after the results were announced in the bar on Monday, people started claiming to have rigged the election.” In an email to the JCR, Snower explained the decision to re-poll: “As no voting slips are marked, it was impossible to ascertain which of these invalid votes went to which candidates. Therefore the only way to ensure that the result is fair is to have a re-poll.” In the same email Snower claimed that the votes were purely from “people on their year abroad and others who couldn’t attend the ballot box.” The current New College JCR President, Ben Karlin, said, “The situation is unfortunate for all concerned, but given the circumstances the fairest possible outcome has been reached and I wish the candidates the best of luck on Friday.” The JCR email encourages “everyone to vote in exactly the same manner in which they voted on Monday.” Photo: Richard Lowkeslast_img read more

Queen’s rugby bloodbath

first_imgThree rugby players from Queen’s College have been injured following a violent rugby match against Magdalen this week, with one player having to have metal plates set in his jaw.Jonty Strachan, has had to have metal plates set into his jaw, Tom Nash has broken his leg while another player, James Thompson has broken his nose.Queen’s lost the match 6 – 3 and JCR president Strachan puts this down to the “series of unfortunate events” debilitating the three players.He described the game as “very close” with “just bad luck” playing a big role in this “very bloody match” which perhaps they could have “easily won” were it not for the injuries.He added that despite what may be assumed there was “not a physical mismatch” and Magdalen were not being excessively aggressive.Strachan has had to take time off from all duties to recover at home after having already spent a few nights at the John Radcliffe Hospital.The injury itself came as he attempted a tackle, his jaw colliding with the opponent’s knee. James Thompson described the surgery on his team-mate as “serious”.Doctors used plates to repair Strachan’s jaw which had split down the front and had to wire his cheeks; he also lost a few teeth.Thompson also describes the match as “close-scoring” despite being a “bit bloody” and puts the loss down to a lack of shape and structure after Strachan’s hospitalisation.He himself is unsure what caused his broken nose, which came two minutes before Strachan’s “more serious” accident.The catalogue of injuries grew with Tom Nash. His injury came as a player fell on him, yet it was only after being sent off half an hour later did he realise his leg was broken. He is now on crutches.The Queen’s captain called the match “tight” and “well contested” despite what may appear to be a bloodbath.Moreover, he described the “good sportsmanship” of the players in a game that was “great to watch” and enjoyable to play in.He did, however, express the opinion that the professional referee “wasn’t very good” and, although Magdalen would probably disagree, he felt that he “changed his mind quite a lot”.last_img read more
