Upon reading these posts, The Scoop contacted the Students’ Union Returning Officer who said, “currently no petition has been lodged” and as such, no verification process has begun.

The Scoop contacted QUB Sinn Fein to establish when the petition will be lodged to the Students’ Union Returning Officer who will then begin a process of verification. In their statement, QUBSF said “We have spoken to the Union and they’re expecting the petition tomorrow morning, with the referendum then to go ahead on the 28th as per the Constitution”.
