Tehran - FNA

Edward Snowden, the former US National Security Agency analyst who revealed US surveillance of phone and Internet communications, was elected rector of Glasgow University in Scotland on Tuesday. The analyst was nominated by a group of students at the university who said they had received his approval through his lawyer, Voice of Russia reported. The group said, "We are incredibly delighted to see Edward Snowden elected as the new rector of Glasgow University." The statement said the institution had a "virtuous tradition of making significant statements through our rectors". It added, "Our opposition to pervasive and immoral state intrusion has gone down in the records. "What is more, we showed Edward Snowden and other brave whistleblowers that we stand in solidarity with them, regardless of where they are." The largely symbolic post of rector mainly involves representing the university's students. The successful candidate is expected to attend meetings with the governing body and other authorities. Snowden received temporary asylum in Russia in August, a move that infuriated the United States, and is believed to be living in the Moscow area. Previous holders of the rector's post at Glasgow University include Winnie Mandela and Israeli nuclear whistleblower Mordechai Vanunu. The current holder is former Liberal Democrat party leader Charles Kennedy. Snowden defeated former champion cyclist Graeme Obree, author Alan Bissett and a local vicar.
