We would like to congratulate the newly elected NUS President Shakira Martin on her election win. In particular, Shakira's election demonstrates a rejection of the divisive rhetoric used by the current President, Malia Bouattia, whose past antisemitic comments have remained problematic for Jewish students for over a year.

Following Shakira’s recent work with UJS, which included a trip to Poland ahead of Holocaust Memorial Day this year, we look forward to seeing her continue prioritising the interests and welfare of Jewish students amongst all students as NUS National President. We wish her the very best in her new role.
