Nominations are now open for the election of the FDA president and members of the FDA Executive Committee. As members of both the FDA and UNISON, MiP members are entitled to stand for election, nominate candidates and vote in both elections.
FDA Executive Committee
MiP has four seats on the FDA Executive Committee. MiP members can only nominate candidates from within the MiP constituency, and each nomination must be signed by at least two MiP members or by the MiP National Committee. If more than four candidates are nominated, a postal ballot will be held. Members elected to represent the MiP constituency will serve for a two-year term, from 1 June 2020 to 31 May 2022.

MiP members can also nominate candidates, from any constituency of the FDA, for the post of the FDA president. Candidates will need at least 30 nominations to stand, including at least five from three different constituencies. If more than one candidate is successfully nominated, a postal ballot will be held. The president will service a two-year term, from 1 June 2020 to 31 May 2022.
