Counter Candidatures

Still interested in any of the positions? You can submit a counter candidature to any position, regardless if you were part in the nomination process or not. You can counter candidate both for vacant positions or to a position that the Nomination Committee has decided to nominate someone for. If you wish to counter candidate, send an email to luna@luna.lu.se stating to which position you wish to counter candidate and with a text describing why you would be the right candidate for the position. The deadline for counter candidatures is on Thursday, April 12th at 17.00.

If you are unable to meet the deadline, you can always counter candidate at the meeting. Your motivations will however not be part of the official documents for the meeting. There is no restriction on the length of a candidature text, they can neither be to short nor too long, but should contain enough information for parliament members to be able to prepare what they wish to ask from you. We are looking forward to seeing your counter candidatures and to two interesting election evenings.

What are the positions?

We have a list of all positions in the union on the webpage. It includes basic descriptions of the roles of all positions. For formal requirements, we refer to the union statutes which you can find on our page with regulatory documents.

How do elections in the union work?

What is a nomination/candidature?

LUNA is a democratic organisation and every position is available for every member to apply for. Members can either candidate for a position themselves or if they know someone who they believe would do a good job with a position, they can nominate that person.

A candidature usually consists of contact information together with a short letter about why you are interested in and would be suitable for the position. A nomination consists of contact information from both the person sending in the nomination as well as the nominee and a short letter about why the nominee would be suitable for the position.

Candidatures and nominations are received by the nomination committee. If it is a nomination, the committee will contact the nominee and ask if they wish to accept their nomination and candidate. The nomination is then converted into a candidature. The nomination committee will then summon the candidate to an interview.

In the end of the election period, the nomination committee will inform the candidate if they have decided to nominate them. If a candidate is not nominated, they can choose to send in a counter candidature to the union presidium. At the election meeting for the union parliament, all candidates that are nominated and all candidates that have sent in a counter candidature will be able to present themselves and answer questions before the parliament holds elections.
