    how to express it in English

    Hello.

    Hello.


    As in each company, it is customary to choose another member of the Supervisory Board by election when his predecessor dies or resigns. In this case, terms of office is 3 years.


    I would like express the thought in the sentence below:


    On such and such a day, a by-election for a three-year-long position of member of the Supervisory Board took place.


    What is your opinion?

    Don't use by-election. You could use vote. There was a vote to elect a new member of the Supervisory Board.
