The composition of the list of candidates will be verified on Thursday

The Central Election Committee of the Student Union was not able to verify the composition of the list of candidates for the Student Council Elections due to incompletely filled documents by the electoral lists.

The Central Election Committee asks the lists to complete their documents the 19th of October by 12 o’clock. The electoral lists concerned have been already informed. The Central Election Committee will then verify the composition of the list of candidates.
