Elsie Owusu and Alan Jones first to throw hats into ring
Elsie Owusu and Alan Jones have announced they are to run for RIBA president after Ben Derbyshire steps down next year.
Belfast-based Jones stood on an education ticket in the previous race in 2016 when he came second.
Owusu is taking advantage of a rule change she forced the RIBA to make allowing any member to stand.
Barred from standing in 2016, she successfully argued that the so-called “Brady bylaw”, which required candidates to have served in elected RIBA posts for a certain number of years, was discriminatory.
