Why should I vote for VUUR?

VUUR is a University party that defends the rights of Utrecht University students. It is the only party that takes part in elections throughout the entire university, in both the University Council and Faculty Councils. This allows us to represent students from all faculties in a righteous manner. Because we are an association, our fraction members all know each other well. This way, our members are easily informed on everything that’s going on throughout the university, which can be used in student representation. Our association also provides in training, which allows us to constantly improve and grow as politicians. This improves the quality of student representation, which is very important to us. Also, our candidates are all selected through a very strict selection procedure, both on student participation issues and on a diverse background. Our representatives are also not dependent on the viewpoints of a national party, but are representative of Utrecht and its specific issues.
