I was procrastinating and therefore ended up reading ICU regulation 2 - Elections and referenda.
From my brief flick through it would appear we've actually breached point 32 "The Union's delegates for the University of London Union's Council will be the President and those Deputy Presidents whom Council request to go. The remaining delegates shall be elected at the first Council of the year by and from the Full membership."
Unless council or whoever voted to suspend this regulation...
Hmm, I thought that last year when the Union switched to OM's being elected by secret ballot, and abolished the AGM, the other posts were also covered- but in the version of the Constitution in the resource book, reg.2 section 25 still mentions central non-sabbatical officers being elected at the AGM. Either these slipped through the net during the constitutional change, or they're in a different part of the minutes and so they've just been missed out when updating the resource book. I shall check through the papers this evening.
"The Union's delegates for the University of London Union's Council will be the President and those Deputy Presidents whom Council request to go."
I am joyously able to claim particular credit for this wonderful piece of legislation. I was the particular Deputy President who didn't want to go in the first place so they made it a Regulation that if Council asked, I had to be the delegate. I love politics, it's always so relevant to today's youth.
Luckily being mandated to be the Delegate and actually attending the meetings do not always go hand in hand.
