LTKY Election Rule (in Student Union’s official language)

The Representative Council is the highest decision-making body of the Student Union and meets approximately once a month. The Representative Council elects a Board for the Student Union and appoints student representatives. Chooses the student representatives for the LUT University, LOAS and FSHS administrations and decide the amount of the membership fee and approve the budget. In addition, the Representative Council decides on the broad lines when LTKY expresses its opinion on, for example, education policy.

All eligible LTKY members are listed in the LTKY Representative Council Election List.

Eligibility means that you have the right to vote and to sign up as a candidate in council elections.

If your name is not on the electoral roll, you will not be able to vote or stand for election.

The electoral list is available at the Student Union office

If you are unsure of your eligibility, check it from Monday to Thursday from 10am to 3pm and Fridays from 10am to 2pm at the LTKY office. If you cannot get there, you can contact the Central Election Commission Secretary.
