Student Union Politics
In the election that take place every spring, different parties are competing to get as many seats as possible in the Student Union Representative Assembly, the Student Union's highest decision making organ. The Student Union Representative Assembly has 41 seats and decides, among other things, who will be President and Vice President of the Student Union.
All members of SUS have the right to candidate in the election, but only registered parties has the right to nominate candidates. Therefore, if you’d like to candidate, either register your own party or become member in a already existing party and search for a nomination.
To vote, all you need is to become a member in the Student Union three weeks before the election starts.
The student union election is important to you as a student. The result affects a variety of things, such as which educational policy issues will be prioritized, which student discounts that will be offered and what services the student union will offer you next year.
