A vote for me is a vote for less bureaucracy, more democracy and better transparency between students and the Union. Unsure on what decisions are being made, who makes them and what the consequences may be? Worry not, as I pledge for a union with better outreach and communication with you.

I stand for a fair and democratic Union where all voices are heard with no individual or group left feeling marginalised. Ultimately, I strive for a change that ensures you as students feel a more active, rather than passive, role in the union that represents you.

Our Union is feeble. We have a vast almost 40’000 strong student body, we can achieve a lot, but we don’t. I will change that:

• Societies are the only real form of engagement with Union.
• You sign up to a society because you are interested in that society.
• I will use Societies as a direct way for the Union to communicate with you, so you know when there is something happening you are interested in.

• This will increase engagement.
• When engagement increase, the Union becomes more effective as its officials become accountable to you.
• UCL will have to take it seriously.
• The Union becomes your tool for betterment. Whatever you want to do, we can do it together.

• When is the last time you read the Union emails?
• When is the last time you heard the Union achieve something?
• When is the last time you had a problem, but the Union couldn’t help?

Your Union, Your Choice, Your Vote.
Vote for More Access To Every Individual.
Vote for Matei.
