The Board of Deputies appointed the Seligson Commission to investigate whether there had been irregularities in the 2017 election and the commission recommended that an independent constitutional commission be appointed to investigate the Board’s election system.
At the moment three people are elected by public ballot and twelve people are elected at the conference by the affiliated organisations.
Accordingly, the Board appointed an Independent Constitutional Committee which has been meeting to examine the issues. In order to ensure broad community participation in the process, it has drawn up a Mail Chimp questionnaire which was sent out to the communal database in August and September.
The results will be analysed and used to inform the deliberations of the committee when finalising its recommendations.
CHAIRPERSON, INDEPENDENT CONSTITUTIONAL COMMISSION
