#USI17 – USI Officer Board election results

A new Officer Board of the Union of Students in Ireland has now been elected. It is the first Officer Board of USI to not have a UCC alumnus since 2011. UCC represents a key hustings to win, as UCC possess a large number of votes; this is reflected in the results below, as almost all candidates UCC reps voted for at the last student council were later elected to USI Officer Board. These officers will take over from the current group at the beginning of July.
