Local commissions will organize electoral processes for new councilors
According to the Electoral Code approved by the Superior Council (Consup (Superior Council)), in an extraordinary meeting on February 2, in the period from 10 to 20 February, the composition of the Local Electoral Commissions will be held, the process will be organized by the Electoral Commission Central (CEC), defined by Resolution No. 429/2021. And it will define specific local commissions for each campus and for the rectory, which will coordinate the consultation process for new councilors.
The Electoral Commission of each campus will be composed of at least six members, two from each segment of the academic community, and their respective alternates. In order to guide and clarify possible doubts about the process of forming local commissions, CEC publishes a document with information about the process. Read below:
CEC Communication nº 1/2021 - General guidelines for the formation of local IFSP electoral commissions
CEC Communiqué nº2 / 2021 - General guidelines for the formation of local IFSP electoral commissions
The selection processes of the team that will compose the Local Commission must be carried out by elections, or, in the absence of more interested than the number of vacancies, by direct indication of the director-general.
Extensive disclosure of the processes, as well as their procedure, is very important.
Some restrictions for the components of the Local Electoral Commissions must be complied with, due to legal determinations or common sense reasons, since these Commissions must, in addition to organizing local consultations, judge in the first instance resources that are passed on to them. Detailing these restrictions:
- Not be a candidate in this election;
- Do not be a relative until the third degree of candidate, if they come from the same campuses.
- Not being politically linked to candidates or appearing as an active supporter (asking for votes, criticizing candidates ...) of groups or candidates.
