斯诺登当选英国格拉斯哥大学“学生校长”

2014-02-19    来源:网络    【      美国外教 在线口语培训

美国“监控门”事件揭秘者斯诺登18日被英国格拉斯哥大学的学生选举为“学生校长”(student rector)。

学生校长是格拉斯哥大学一个独特的职位,由学生投票选举产生,任期3年,主要工作职责包括出席学校行政评议会、与学生代表委员会一起工作、让学生关注的问题得到学校管理层的重视等。

斯诺登目前在俄罗斯接受临时庇护,无法出现在竞选现场。格拉斯哥大学表示,不能出席竞选并不妨碍斯诺登当选。斯诺登获得候选人资格后,校方已经征得他的同意。

Former National Security Agency contractor Edward Snowden was elected Tuesday as the official representative of the student body at the University of Glasgow.

Students at the institution say that they nominated Snowden to make a statement about democratic rights.

"We showed Edward Snowden and other brave whistleblowers that we stand in solidarity with them, regardless of where they are," they said in a statement.

Snowden, who leaked documents disclosing details of U.S. spies' surveillance of the Internet and telephone communications, has received temporary asylum in Russia.

Glasgow students had earlier said they contacted Snowden through his lawyers and he agreed to stand for the job, known as rector.

Previous rectors at the university include Winnie Mandela, who was elected though students knew that she would not be able to travel to Glasgow.

Given that Britain has an extradition treaty with the United States, where Snowden is wanted on criminal charges, it is most unlikely that he would choose to come.
