*The twelfth position was tied between Katharina Klebba and Sophia Morrell and the constitution states ‘In the event of a tie the Chair of the Young Fabian Group shall have a casting vote.’ This was far from an ideal solution and our Chair, James Hallwood, made it clear that he thought future years should seek a better constitutional solution. However, bound by the rules and in discussion with the candidates, he and Katharina decided that she would give way to allow Sophia her first experience of the Executive. The graciousness with which Katharina stepped aside was noted by the outgoing and incoming Executive and she has our thanks for three years of work for the Young Fabians.

Commiserations to those who were unsuccessful this time – there will be ample opportunity to get involved over the coming year. Thanks to all who ran.
