The University Senate of the ULPGC held yesterday the votes for the renewal of the members of the Ombudsman of the University Community and to fill the vacancies of the members of the Central Electoral Board. The session was attended by a total of 107 cloisters, and all exercised their right to vote in the two scheduled votes.
For the University Community Ombudsman body –which is made up of two representatives of the teaching staff, one representative of the student body and another of the administration and services staff–, only candidates were presented for president and representative of the student body. For this reason, the teacher Alejandra Sanjuán Hernán-Pérez was elected as president (97 votes in favor) and Tomás Santana García as representative of the cloistered student body (80 votes in favor), as the absolute majority of the cloistered present required in the first vote had been reached. .
The vacancies of the Central Electoral Board were two members of the teaching and research staff with permanent links and full-time dedication, three students and a member of the research staff hired with non-permanent links to the university.
In the elections, José Mario González Pajuelo, from the Department of Biology (76 votes), and Vicente Mena Santana, from the Department of Signals and Communications (68 votes), were elected as permanent teaching and research staff. In addition, Luis Miguel Azofra Mesa, from the Environmental Studies and Natural Resources IU (67 votes), was elected as a representative of the research staff hired with a non-permanent relationship.
In the Central Electoral Board the students will be represented by María de los Ángeles Martínez Cudero (72 votes), Javier Pérez García (76 votes) and Paula Santana Santana (73 votes).
