Definition: a public declaration of policy and aims, issued before an election by an election candidate. A candidate types out what they want to achieve if they get elected. ULSU has a strategic plan – Taking Giant Steps 2016-2020. I advise students to match up their manifesto to the Strategic Plan. Don’t be afraid of the strategic plan.It is very broad and can encompass most candidates objectives. It’s important to have a manifesto that is reasonable as well. A lot of people put down stuff that is just in no way achievable, while I would of course encourage you to think big don’t take students for granted, they aren’t stupid. Your manifesto must be submitted with your nomination form by 12pm Thursday 28th February to inform students who the candidates are and what each person’s objectives are if they get elected.
