The Vice-Chancellor gives notice that an election of three students to serve as members of the Council (class (d)) will be held on Tuesday, 2 March 1999. Members are to be elected in the following two categories (Statute A, IV, 2, Statutes and Ordinances, p. 7)

(i) two students elected by and from among all eligible students in the University;
(ii) one graduate student elected by and from among all eligible graduate students in the University.

Members elected in both categories are to serve for one year from 1 July 1999. The election will be conducted under the Single Transferable Vote regulations.

The Registrary will publish on the first day of the Full Lent Term 1999 electoral rolls of all persons who are eligible, under the provisions of Statute A, IV and of the regulations governing the conduct of this election and rules made under these regulations, to vote and to stand as candidates in this election.

In order to be eligible a candidate must be nominated on a nomination form sent to the Vice-Chancellor at The Old Schools so as to reach him not later than noon on Tuesday, 16 February 1999. Nomination forms may be obtained from the University Registry or from the CUSU or Graduate Union. The forms contain (a) a statement, which must be signed by eight students eligible to take part in the election in the relevant category, certifying that they nominate the candidate for election, and (b) a statement which must be signed by the candidate consenting to be nominated. Nomination forms should be accompanied by a statement by the candidate for the information of voters. No person shall be nominated in both categories.

The Vice-Chancellor will publish nominations as they are received. The complete list of nominations will be published in the Reporter on Wednesday, 24 February 1999.
