Let Buttons be Nominated for Rector of the University of Aberdeen

This petition had 454 supporters

On Thursday the 8th of February 2018, sixty-two students signed a rectorial nomination form requesting that Buttons, the white cat that lives on campus, be allowed to run as candidate in the upcoming elections for the position of rector to the University of Aberdeen. The elections committee could not validate the nomination as Buttons did not meet requirements under the OSCR Guidelines to being a charity trustee (as outlined in the Charities and Trustee Investment (Scotland) Act 2005) as is required under Section 2.2 of the Rules.

We have been given 24 hours to make an appeal to the elections committee and have decided to open this petition in the hope of getting enough students engaged to prove that it is necessary for Buttons to be nominated as candidate for the sake of student interest, democracy and fluffy feline friendliness. 

Vote for cats not bureaucrats. Vote for Buttons.
