Once a candidate is officially nominated and has declared candidacy,

2. Are not allowed to be endorsed by a current cabinet member serving in the term of the current campaign period. However, candidates are allowed to be endorsed by any cabinet alumnus that has served in the past of their position they are running for, who are not currently serving in the current campaign term.
3. Candidates are not allowed to slander, discriminate, or put down any other candidate(s). All candidates are representing Akbayan and SJSU, therefore, all must abide by rules of conduct accordingly.
4. Keep in mind that voters must be active Akbayan General members.
1. Why aren’t candidates allowed to be endorsed by a current cabinet member?
The current cabinet is neutral during the campaigning period and will not be showing any bias towards any certain candidate.
2. Are you allowed to campaign with other candidates?
Yes, as long as the candidates adhere by the campaigning rules. (ie. President candidate and VP candidate can campaign together)
