As an elected representative of SSCO, you represent Stockholm’s students. The elected representatives are primarily selected at the student council meeting in spring (usually May). At the student council meeting in November 2018 it was decided that the right to nominate persons to SSCO’s elected representative positions was to be broadened to mean that any person who is a member of an SSCO-affiliated student union has the right to nominate.
