Earlier this week, the first ticket for the PARSA elections was launched under the banner ‘Advocate for PARSA’. The ticket is running candidates for all executive positions. The ticket is politically unaligned and based on the principles of community and care.
Current Interim Education Officer, Eve Walker is running for President alongside Naomi Otto for the position of Vice President. The current HDR officer Chitresh Saraswat is their candidate for Education Officer and current Interim Equity Officer Epi Terbio is running for the role of Equity Officer.
Their main policies involve managing the predicted reduction in SSAF for next year, increasing the visibility of College Officers by initiating a help desk and developing educational materials on various campus services and student rights. They are also promising to advocate for adequate postgraduate student accommodation options and the reduction of ‘community welfare fees’ paid by students to the residential halls.
