Council of Representatives
The Council of Representatives is the highest decision-making body in the Student Union. Its 40 members are elected every two years with the representative elections. The Council of Representatives appoints the Student Union’s Executive Board and decides on Tamy’s outlines, such as the budget and plan of action. All Tamy’s members have the right to be present in the council’s meetings. In the elections, every Student Union member enrolled as present has the right to vote and stand for election. In addition, Student Union members have the right to make initiatives to the Council of Representatives or the Executive Board.
In the year 2018, the chair of the Council of Representatives is Suvi Parhankangas (Contact). The first vice-chair is Marianna Pukkala (Viva, the Green Left in the University of Tampere) and the second vice-chair is Janne Vikman (Vapaaboomarit). You can ask them about how the council works and what the future agendas will cover.
The Council of Representatives meets approximately five times during the academic year, usually in one of the lecture halls at the University. Various different groups operate in the Council of Representatives, and discussion in the meetings is usually lively. The meetings usually begin at 4.30 p.m. and the places are announced when the meeting is called.
Tamy’s Council of Representatives consists of various political and politically independent groups, each with its own purpose and method. In the representative elections, candidates are free to form electoral alliances and electoral circles within the limits of the Student Union’s rules.
