Very well done to OV Charlie Mackintosh (Cr 16-20), who has just been elected President of the Oxford Union for Hilary Term 2023, in a landslide victory. The Oxford Union is an internationally renowned and prestigious debating society, formed in 1823, but many will know the Union for its high profile and often controversial speaker events.
Charlie has been an active member of the Union since starting his Philosophy, Politics and Economics degree at New College, Oxford in 2020. This has included taking on the roles of Press Officer and then Librarian for the society, both of which have been handled in the face of the Pandemic.
Charlie added, “I am delighted to have the utter privilege of being elected by the members of the Oxford Union to serve as its President for Hilary Term 2023. The Oxford Union Society has been a massive part of my time at university and to serve as its president, particularly in the year of its 200th anniversary, is a truly great honour.”
Charlie has previously kindly shared a blog of his experiences transitioning from Vigornian to Old Vigornian in the midst of COVID, and then from his first year at Oxford, which you can read here.
Our many congratulations Charlie!
