Eventually, EMU Student Council (composed of 14 members in total) will be formed by representatives from Faculties (11 members), School (1 member), English Preparatory School (1 member) and International Student Society (1 member).

During their first meeting on 8 November 2018, EMU Student Council members will appoint Executive Board members. They will elect a chair, a vice-chair, a secretary and a responsible person for financial affairs.

With its pioneering position in TRNC, Eastern Mediterranean University should be a model for other institutions for the practice of democracy and the demonstration of unity and solidarity. In this respect, I kindly ask all candidates and voters to go through the election process with utmost respect and understanding. Support and sensitivity of the academic and administrative staff during the elections period will also be highly appreciated.
