Guild election results upheld

THE BOARD of Trustees of the Guild have rejected an appeal  to disqualify Ben Meakin for his overspend in this years Guild election.

Meeting on Monday, the Board also considered a lengthy complaint from Adam Robertson, taking note of several points but ultimately not upholding any of the complaints.

Meakin’s election had been in doubt after he broke the fine limit and was  initially disqualified, though the Returning Officer declined to disqualify him in light of the small amount by which he overspent.

The Board of Trustees decided that the election results would be upheld and Meakin would not be disqualified, and hence keep his position as President.
