The nomination started yesterday and ends on 27 August. The period covers the longest flight pattern of 9 days so as to give those crew who want to stand for the election to submit their nomination. The same goes for the voting period which also stretches for 9 days.
As far as I know there will be 2 main parties contesting i.e. the incumbent Heart Party and the main opposition Voice Party. There may be a few crew standing as independent candidates. Choice Party which was dethroned by Heart in 2015 is trying to make a comeback but is unsuccessful because it does not have enough candidates. This time round each party will field 30 candidates instead of 20 as in 2015.
The campaigning which will commence from 27 till 31 August will be interesting. If you want to see some actions, visit Changi Airport Terminal 3 basement where the cabin crew control center is situated.
