Election Process

A crucial item on the agenda is the election of two new Vice Presidents. The FIG Council has received five nominations for these positions. Similar to the past three years, the election will be conducted online during the Working Week, utilizing the same voting system. This enables all members (in good standing) to cast their votes. Member associations are asked to register their official delegate and participate actively.

This year there can be up to 4 voting rounds. To conclude the election by the second General Assembly on Thursday, 23rd May, the first round of voting will commence on Sunday, 19th May, at 18:00 GMT, aligning with the time zone of the Working Week destination.
