Jones won with 52% of the votes on a turnout of 19% in a three horse race against Elsie Owusu and Philip Allsopp. This is the second time Jones has stood for president after losing to Ben Derbyshire in 2016. Jones will take over from Ben Derbyshire next September and will take up the role as president elect next month.
