There should be no positions in the executive elections that require qualification beyond being a student at the University of Leicester. If a position is one which has potential to influence policy for all students, then it should be open for all students to vote for it, not just "self-identified" minority groups.
In these current elections (Semester two, 2019), straight, white males, or those who have not self-identified as BAME, LGBTQ+, Disabled, etc are excluded from voting for the Equality and Liberation Officer. This does not represent equality. Equality means fairness, or the 'state of being equal'. This cannot be achieved by allowing only certain 'types' of people to vote for a position which is supposed to be representative of all.
This should be changed for all future elections. It should also be changed in this election.
