The highest decision-making body of the Student Union, the Representative Council of sixty members, will be elected in HYY's Representative Council elections. HYY's members, almost 30,000 students of the University of Helsinki are entitled to vote and run as candidates for the Representative Council in the elections. This time, the electoral term of the elected Representative Council is exceptionally only 1 year. This is to ensure that in the future the elections will not be arranged in the same year as the University's administrative elections.
