Election´s website

In accordance with Section 8 of Act No. 111/1998 on Higher Education Institutions and Amendments to Other Acts (the Higher Education Act) and with Article 4 of the Statutes of AMU and to Article 2 (1, 19) of the Election Rules of the Academic Senate of AMU, PhDr. Ingeborg Radok Žádná, the Rector of the Academy of Performing Arts in Prague (AMU), announced the supplementary special election for the Academic Senate of AMU for the 2021–2024 term of office.

The supplementary special election shall be held on 1 and 2 March 2023.

The election will be held by means of an electronic vote, where it will be possible to vote using computers, tablets and mobile handsets.

The election application will be accessible to the members of the Academic Community upon entering their login information (user name and main password for the AMU network). Voting will be possible in the period from 1 March 2023 (8:00 am) to 2 March 2023 (4:00 pm). More information on the organisation of the vote including a detailed manual is available HERE.

AS AMU has 15 members in two chambers, the teachers’ chamber and the students’ chamber. The members of the teachers’ chamber are elected from among AMU’s academic workers. The members of the students’ chamber are elected from among AMU students. The teachers’ chamber has nine members and the students’ chamber has six members. For each Faculty, a maximum of three members are elected to the teachers’ chamber and a maximum of two members to the students’ chamber. Since the protocol of the electoral committee from the regular elections to the AS AMU for the Music and Dance Faculty does not contain another alternate for a vacant seat in the student chamber of AS AMU, rector announces a supplementary special election, at the initiative of the AS AMU Chair.

Candidates for AS AMU in this supplementary special election may be nominated by any member of academic community of HAMU and of school-wide teaching workplaces outside the Faculty, and any member of the HAMU academic community may run for the position.
