A no confidence vote for reps and societies/clubs to remove a rep/committee member if students don't feel represented.
There is not currently a mechanism in place to remove Academic Representatives or Sports and Society Committee members from their role if students do not feel adequately represented. I propose we use the same system currently in place for Full-Time and Volunteer Officers and create an option for a vote of No Confidence, this would allow for removal of a rep or committee member. A student would have to reach a quorum of 10% of their club or society committee members / relevant course members for the vote to be valid.
I think this will improve accountability for these roles and give students more power when choosing who they are represented by.
