Salient. Victoria University Student Newspaper. Vol. 37, No. 7. April, 17 1974


Election poster

The AGM discussed several motions that will nominally reshape the executive of the association. From a practical point of view, the passing of them has little effect on the forthcoming elections except to confuse there [unclear: momentarily]. The following is the Electorial Committee's interpretation of them for the election April 23 and 24.

(i)The position of President remains unchanged and the candidates are: Don Carson, Stephen Lungley, John McDonald, Peter Rotherham.
(ii)The motion regarding NZUSA Liason Officer has the effect of removing this position as of December 31, 1974. In other words, it will be contested by: Tony Lane, Anthony Ward.
(iii)Under motion number 5 any position for which only one application is received, then that applicant must receive at least 50% of the vote, i.e not more than 50% of voters having struck out his/her name.

The only nomination received for the position of Woman's vice-president was that of Diane Hooper. Under normal circumstances her appointment would be final as of the last possible time that she was able to withdraw her application (4.30 Monday, April 8)

It is a debatable point as to whether or not this motion can or should effect the election process that has already been started. The committee leans toward the view that the spirit of the constitution and the spirit of the motion itself should be interpreted to include this motion in the rules for the forthcoming election. However this point has not been finally decided, but it will be made clear on the voting papers.

Candidates are reminded that photographs for display at polling places can be obtained through application to Salient urgently. Polling booths will be at the following times and places:

Tuesday April 23 and Wednesday 24.

Library Foyer 8am and 6pm both days.

Student Union Foyer Sam to 7pm both days.

There will be an election forum on Monday April 22—watch for notices of time and place.
