The election for the Rector will take place on Tuesday 13 April 2021 between 8am and 4pm at all 26 member faculties of the University and at the Rector's Office simultaneously. Due to the epidemiological conditions, voting will take place electronically, using the Simply Voting system.

The following four candidates are standing for election as Rector of the University of Ljubljana for the 2021-2025 term (listed in alphabetical order of surname):

  • Dr Igor Lukšič (proposed by UL FDV),
  • Dr Gregor Majdič (proposed by UL VF),
  • Dr Igor Papič (proposed by UL FE and UL FKKT),
  • Dr Anton Ramšak (proposed by UL FMF).

The right to vote for the Rector is held by three groups of voters as follows:

  • higher education teachers, scientific staff and higher education and research associates who are employed at the University for at least half the regular hours, except for teachers of clinical subjects, who must be employed for at least 25 percent of the full regular hours;
  • students;
  • professional, administrative and technical staff who are employed for at least half the regular hours.

Groups of voters have different weighting in the tallying of votes, whereby the groups of students and professional staff each account for 20 percent of the entire vote. The election is direct and will take place simultaneously at all member faculties and the Rector's Office.

We are kindly inviting the voters to attend the elections.
