Fresh YI elections called

Today the next set of YI Elections were called, with all elected YI Officers facing re-election. This has been called one month early but will still follow the initial plan of the National Elections taking place between 25/5 – 1/6, Regional Elections taking place between 8/6 – 15/6 and the County Elections taking place between 22/6 – 29/6, more detail below.

Jack Duffin said: “It has been an incredible pleasure running YI for the last 15 months, we have achieved a great deal and I would like to thank the amazing people I have worked alongside.

“I thought it was best to step aside now and begin new elections at the start of June rather than wait another month due to the incredibly important assembly elections next year where we could win seats in all four.

“We brought in some big changes during this term, in particular the ‘How YI Works’ and a team of full time officers. I truly believe it will set YI up to continue to grow in the future.

“I look forward to continuing as a YI Patron and passing on what I have learnt to the next team that is elected to run YI.”​
