Foundation Board elections 2017

A total of 50 candidates had qualified for election to the highest governing body, which comprises equal numbers of employer and employee representatives. The exercising of voting rights by the administration committees (employee/employers' representatives) took place exclusively in electronic form via the online voting tool from June 15 to July 10, 2017. A relative majority sufficed for election. In other words, the candidates who gained the most votes in their election group (small, medium or large companies) were elected.
