Forming an electoral alliance
Candidates may form an electoral alliance of up to twelve (12) persons. A representative must be appointed to the electoral bloc, who may also be a person outside the electoral bloc. The electoral alliance is formed by filling in the founding declaration form, which must state the full names and student numbers of all candidates belonging to the electoral alliance. The electoral bloc must be given a name which will be published in the election announcements. The name or logo of the electoral bloc must not infringe on anyone’s personal rights or be contrary to the values of the student union. The central electoral commission has the right to order the electoral bloc to rename itself or reject the ID.
A candidate may belong to only one electoral alliance. If a candidate has not declared that he or she belongs to an electoral alliance, he or she is considered to be alone in his or her own alliance, ie so-called non-aligned. The list of candidates will be published on the student union’s website, on social media channels, and as posters on official campus bulletin boards.
