Glossary


What is an "uncontested election"?

An uncontested election means that it is not necessary to hold a vote.

There is no need to vote if the number of candidates who have been nominated does not exceed the number of mandates within a single representation area.

The Election Committee declares the candidates on the list to be elected in the order listed. Non-elected candidates are regarded as substitutes for the elected candidates.

What does "cancellation of election" mean?

The election is cancelled if, within a particular representation area, a candidate list has not been submitted before the specified deadline. 

A cancelled election means that there are no elected representatives. For members of academic staff, it is therefore necessary to hold a draw to decide which employees will sit on the body. This is because employees are under a contractual obligation to serve as members of the university's governing bodies. In the case of students, it is not possible to appoint representatives, but you can choose to appoint observers without voting rights.
