The new Rector of Glasgow University: Edward Snowden.

Former NSA analyst Edward Snowden was elected as the students delegate in the Scottish University of Glasgow.

“The students have spoken and they chose Edward Snowden as their new Rector,” the University published via its Twitter account.

Snowden competed against local Cyclist Graeme Obree, Writer Alan Bissett and Priest Kelvin Holdsworth. The students who proposed whistleblower Snowden affirmed the victory, and stated that “Our opposition against unmoral and general state intrusion has been proved.”

According the rules within that institution, the rector who acts a representative of the students does not have to be present physically at Glasgow.

Before Snowden –who is currently under asylum in Russia- Madela’s widow ‘Winnie’ and former Israeli nuclear scientist Mordejai Vanunu were also chosen for the job.
