Hi

I have a question, if someone wants to stand for the elections,
can he
or she specifially apply for a one year or a two year team as there
are 2 seats on one year term.


Ultimately the Election Committee has to answer the question. My
interpretation is that the answer to your question is "No"

The decision about who gets 1 or 2 year terms is based on the number
of votes each candidate receives.

In this election the 2 highest vote getters will receive the 2 seats
with the 2 year terms and the next 2 vote getters will get the 1
year term seats.

That is my interpretation of the rule and not "official" the
Election-Committee has the final ruling on the interpretation of the
Election rules.

HTH,

Logic dictates that someone running could state in advance that they are
only running for a one-year slot. Otherwise they might win a 2-year
slot, but then resign at the end of one year. That would be
counter-productive.

I do not necessarily disagree, but changes to that effect would possibly require a change to the rules and that is a separate discussion.

Implementing a change to the election guidelines right before the election is probably difficult and thus may be best addressed after the current elections have concluded.
