The Representatives to the term 2017 are chosen
Largest amount of seats to business students
The highest authority of Student Union JAMKO has been chosen in Representatives’ election 2016. The voting turnout in the election was 23 percent. 3856 students were entitled to vote from which 885 students voted. The voting percentage decreased from last year 12,6 percent.
21 actual members were chosen for the term of 2017. Konkurssi (business students) grabbed 7 seats, which is the largest amount of seats in the representatives. The second highest number of seats received Insinööri- opiskelijat (engineering students) students, who got 6 seats. MatkaRaTa representing tourism and service management students reached 4 positions in the representatives and JASTO (social and health care students) collected 3 seats. Music students’ Jammaus received one place to JAMKO representatives. National coalition students, JAMKO’s green students and Centre Party students’ coalitions did not receive enough votes to get a position in JAMKO’s representatives.
The vote-pullers, candidates who collected the most of the votes were Laura Kuisma from Jammaus (79 votes) and MatkaRaTa’s Tuomas Kallinki (53 votes). Kuisma’s poll was significant because she was the only candidate in her alliance and representatives haven’t had an actual member from music campus in several years.
Compared to this years’ term, Konkurssi increased seats by one and engineering students lost one seat. MatkaRaTa received one seat more, JASTO lost two seats and music students received one seat. Music students did not have any seats in the previous year in JAMKO representatives.
