Representative elections

The Council of Representatives is the highest decision-making body in the student union. The Council decides, among other things, on strategy, the yearly budget and Action Plan for the Student Union, and other policy outlines. The Council’s 49 members and their deputy members are elected every two years in the representative elections. The next representative elections are held in October-November 2022. Read more about the Council’s work on a separate page on our website.

The Council of Representatives makes decisions on many themes that impact the students’ everyday life. The Council also decides on the focus points of the Student Union’s advocacy, for example how student culture is improved, what are our member services and the Student Union’s values, and things like the Student Union magazine and development cooperation. By voting you can influence what our student union is like!

Any member of the Student Union, who has enrolled present at Tampere University, can become a candidate and vote in the election. All the members of the Student Union have one vote in the election.
