The news has broken this evening that Harry Noden has withdrawn from the race to be the next President of Swansea University Students’ Union.



Harry Noden has become the first casualty of this year’s FTO elections

Noden has been the focus of much controversy this week, with a smear campaign and Facebook page dedicated to his controversial tweets overshadowing any positive impact Noden was able to make as campaign week draws ever closer.

Because of this, Noden has gained notoriety, and news of his withdrawal must surely come as a blessing in disguise for the two remaining candidates; Ceinwen Cloney and Aron McGill who will battle it out for President in the forthcoming week.

Voting opens online at on Monday at 12pm and will close on Friday 28th March at 5pm.
