RepCo elections

In the Representative Council elections, 45 RepCo members were elected for 2024–2025. We had 236 candidates and 13 electoral alliances running for the Representative Council. Voting percent was 31,95 %, which is 4,23 percent higher than in 2021. In total 5478 students out of 17146 used their right to vote. 

"It was a pleasure to see that the turnout returned close to the pre-pandemic level, although there is still room for improvement for the next election. Thank you for the voting activity goes to all the candidates, electoral alliances and of course to the members of the student union who used their votes. Big congratulations to all new and continuing Representative Council members", thanks Chair of AYY’s Central Election Committee Akseli Konttas

Most votes got Mantè Žygelytė from Pro Arte. Žygelytė got a total of 110 votes. Others with over one hundred votes were Totti Korpua from Pro Arte with 108 votes and Niina Ikonen from SCIsma with 107 votes. 

Among the electoral alliances, Aallon Kokooomus and Greener Aalto got the most seats in the Representative Council, each of which got seven seats. The electoral alliance Pro Arte 5 made the return to the Representative Council. As a new electoral alliance, the Free Left electoral alliance got into the Representative Council with 3 seats. As a result of the elections, the electoral alliance Voltti lost its place in the Representative Council. Of the electoral alliances that were nominated, the votes of the Yhden tähden liike movement and Valta kuuluu fukseille were also not enough for seats in the Representative Council. 

"The number of seats in the ideologically compiled lists increased slightly compared to the lists compiled by field of study, and it will be interesting to see how this will affect the dynamics of the Representative Council in the next two years," commented Akseli Konttas, Chair of AYY’s Central Election Committee.
