David was running as a ‘joke’ candidate, and notably did not attend the Presidential Debate held last Friday.
This leaves six candidates in the running for the Presidential position. These are Sophie Bradfield, Peter ‘Michelle Dando’ Shaw, Peter ‘Pewee’ Ward, David Gilani, James Dykes, and Ellis Sims.
David is the third Sabbatical candidate to withdraw from the Sabbatical elections, after Jared Anderson, retired from the VP Welfare race on Monday, and Jessica Taylor withdrew herself from the VP Communities running last Wednesday.
The Wessex Scene wishes David all the best.
