Which candidates signed up to Reclaim Your Voice?

Wednesday 4 May 2011 NUS News

NUS Scotland promised to let students know which candidates had signed up to say NO to tuition fees and YES to better student support and protected graduate numbers and college places.

In the past few months, we contacted all of the candidates from the main parties* and asked them to support NUS Scotland's Reclaim Your Voice campaign and commit ahead of the Scottish Parliamentary elections to:

  • not introducing fees
  • protecting college places and graduate numbers
  • improving student support

We do not want a repeat of what happened after the last elections. It is vital that students get out and vote to show the politicians that we can not be ignored and we refuse to be let down by Government again.

If you don’t vote, they don’t have to listen.

Reclaim Your Voice – vote.
