The list of candidates for the 2020 UMSU general elections have been announced.
Only one incumbent executive will be seeking re-election — sitting vice-president student life Jelynn Dela Cruz will be running for president with a new slate.
Several community representative nominees are running unopposed, and both the mature students’ representative and the students living with disabilities’ representative positions remain vacant.
