The exact wording of the bylaw is as follows:
"All candidates must receive a two-thirds (2/3) majority of the entire Board of Directors and shall be final and binding"
We have had a legal opinion that because an error had been committed by the number of abstentions, the subsequent election (two month later) of of this individual was null and void.. The vote in allowing this individual to proceed to the election by the membership was; 5 in favour, 4 abstentions, and 2 against. The question that has now arisen in a formal complaint against a Board member is "Who is responsible for declaring that the individual had met the required level of approval to continue on to election by the membership as a whole?"
