In the only uncontested election, Christina Bisol was announced as the next EngSoc President. 

“I’m really excited to incorporate all the ideas brought to light in this campaigning period into my presidency,” Bisol said. “Thank you so much.” 

Current senators Peter Matthews and Jeremy Nguyen introduced Shashank Ojha as the next Junior Senator.

“The person taking on my role is somebody that I saw a lot of promise in,” Nguyen said. “His platform really speaks to the reasons I ran as well.”

Ojha referenced the hard work of his competitor Luka Clancy in his acceptance. 

“I’m definitely very excited for this role and I’m glad, Luka, that our platforms are aligned,” Ojha said. “I’ll fight to make sure your views are represented as much as mine in the Senate because they are so important.”

The current EngSoc Vice-President (Operations) Ben Zarichny announced Benjamin Frosst as his successor. 

“This is an honour and something I’ve been working on for the last two years,” Frosst said, before he thanked his competitor Salma Ibrahim for her campaign.

“Salma, you are a fantastic candidate—you’re awesome and please run for other positions in EngSoc. We’ve got work ahead but let’s get to it.”

Finally, in the most contested election, with four students running for the position, Kaija Edwards was announced as the next EngSoc Vice-President of Student Affairs.

“This has been the most terrifying experience of my entire undergrad,” Edwards said. “To run against three other candidates, with such passion and so many great ideas, makes me so excited to think of the future of the Engineering Society. I am really excited.

“Thank you so much to everyone that came out and voted.”
