Municipal Elections 2021

LTKY in cooperation with KOE is committed to influencing in 2021 municipal elections and hopes for some activity among the students as well. The elections will bring to students the opportunity to participate in the municipality’s policy long term, because representatives are elected for four years at a time. Students can not only vote, but also run to be a representative, if there is closer interest in affecting policy from inside the municipality council. LTKY will release material and continue influencing during the spring, so it is worth it to follow LTKY information channels, like instagram and facebook.
