None of the students who stood as candidates for the city council managed to win a seat. Two university employees succeeded in being elected. Manon Fokke, registrar for the university council, will return for the Labour Party (see the interview on page 7) and Franca Tonnaer, PhD student at psychology, will make her debut in the council for D66.
For the first time this year, there was a polling station at the university. At Student Services, 318 people voted. The most popular party here was D66 with 102 votes, followed by GroenLinks (69) and VVD (47).
