The Australasian Union of Jewish Students has launched AUJS Elects, a project to examine the views of all candidates in campus elections and provide more information about where they stand on issues important to Jewish students.

The first campus elections covered on the site are for the Australian National University in Canberra. Of the four major tickets, responses were received from Electrify, You! , andEmpower. At the time of launch, Turn Over a New Leaf had not issued a response.

“The results of this survey so far should be encouraging for Jewish students at ANU,” commented AUJS Political Affairs Director Joshua Kirsh. “All the tickets surveyed expressed support for a greater role for ANUSA in facilitating interfaith cooperation, accepted the International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance’s working definition of Antisemitism as best practice, and outlined thoughtful ways to work against Antisemitism on campus.

“We look forward to working with all of the elected candidates to ensure that campus culture remains vibrant and inclusive.”

AUJS will publish all late submissions as they arrive on with more campuses to be surveyed as the election season continues.
