FAS’ Reply To Media Query Regarding The Procedures Of The FAS Elections


“Article 28.14 of the FAS Constitution states that:

For the election on a Slate Basis, two-thirds (2/3) of the votes of the Ordinary Members present and eligible to vote are necessary in the first ballot. In the second ballot, a simple majority (more than 50%) of the valid votes cast is sufficient. From the third ballot onward, the Slate which receives the most votes shall be elected.


“Candidates on the Slate Basis will not be able to run again on an Individual Basis if they do not get elected or do not qualify for election into the Council.”
