Voting will take place on Oct. 18th & 19th

Next week you'll get an opportunity to make your voices heard. The MSVU Students' Union will be holding its Fall By-Elections for the 2022 season next Tuesday & Wednesday to fill as many of the vacant seats as possible before heading into a busy stretch of the year.

Voting will be conducted online from 9am on October 18th, and will close at 5pm on the 19th. Results will be announced later that day at 6pm in The Rook. Below is a list of all the candidates running accompanied with their bios. We encourage you all to vote and make your voices heard!

Vice President of Student Life

Nainish Nainvish: My name is Nainvish Nainvish. I am currently pursuing business administration. I am International Representative of the student union as well. I am running for the position of VP student life. I have prior experience in the student union. I was a part of the orientation committee and organized general as well as Interenational orientation 2022. I have been working to organize other events as well in the university during the fall. My main goal as VP student life is to increase the engagement of students in the union. While campaigning for the elections, I realized majority of the students were not even aware of the existence of student union on campus, forget about the elections itself. The strategy I will use to achieve my goal is by being transparent and organizing on-campus social events. There are a lot of changes that need to be made but for that I need your support. It's not just my election, it's our election, it's an election for change. So, make every vote count. You can follow our election campaign on Instagram @vpelectioncampaign.
