KPA Elections 2022

Chief Returning Officer –  Alison Tansey

Deputy Returning Officer – Atieme Ogbolosingha

ELECTION CANDIDATE DISQUALIFICATION NOTICE: 17 May 2022

 

The elections of Keele Postgraduate Association operate in a free, fair, safe and democratic manner. All candidates in our elections are governed by a clear set of procedures and election rules.

 

Unfortunately, this year the election rules have been breached by a candidate, resulting in the KPA taking the difficult decision to disqualify the candidate from this year’s election following a thorough investigation. 

 

My investigation found that, whilst there was by no means a deliberate intention to cheat, there was a clear breach of our rules. 

 

I’d like to thank all candidates and complainants for their co-operation with my investigation over the last few days.

 

Following the conclusion of my investigation, I can now announce that our elections will resume with the following updated timetable:

 

Wednesday 18 May 

Elections re-start and campaigning resumes 

 

Wednesday 25 May 

5pm- Hustings online 

7pm- Voting Opens 

 

Friday 27 May 

5pm- Voting closes

7pm- Results announced online
