23:34 The atmosphere here has absolutely amazing tonight! We look forward to seeing our new full time officers starting their roles in the next academic year. A massive thank you to all the winning candidates who have come in to talk to us, and Danielle Morgan and Claire Mellor for dropping in at such short notice helping make this liveblog a success. Thank you also to the team at The Waterfront, especially Chris Flynn and Jake Wilson for all your help and support. One last thank you to the lovely people in the SU offices who provided us with a room to base ourselves in.
Again, be sure to check out our interviews with all the winning candidates at : http://www.youtube.com/user/thesirenswansea.
Hope to see you all at SUSU Elections 2014!
