Nominations for Democratic Procedures Committee

The proposals are for the individual steering committees to be replaced with a single Democratic Procedures Committee made up of representatives from each nation and the liberation conference. The members elected by a particular conference would have responsibility for steering their conference. Therefore the new roles are analogous to the current roles, it is just the number of positions reducing. Therefore nominations will open and close as normal and the number of positions elected will be modified based on the outcome of reform decisions.

Steering committees are elected on two year terms and there are some incumbent members elected in 2023 who would continue in their term of office. Some of the committees are holding vacancies impacting on the number of new positions to fill. In some spaces there are enough incumbent members to fill the proposed new committee.

Therefore the Returning Officer will open the nominations as normal and close these on day one of the relevant conference. The election will then proceed alongside policy voting after conference. The count will take place after NUS' company law meeting. In spaces where there are positions to fill, a provisional result may be announced to candidates.
