- The supplementary election is being held because Associate Professor Tordis Landvik, is retiring, and we need her successor. The faculty board has an overall function for the activities at the faculty, and we hope that as many good candidates as possible run for the spot, says faculty board chairwoman and dean Marit Wergeland

She also says that if one of todays’ substitute representatives runs for office, and is elected, the election will also be for a new substitute member for the constituency to the board.
