    Hi,

    At our last AGM, we received a written nomination for president prior to the meeting but the Returning Officer called for nominations from the floor. However, our constitution states:

    10 c. If no written nominations are received, nominations may be accepted from the floor of the meeting provided consent is given by the candidate.

    I would like to know the validity of the vote between the 2 candidates, validity of the AGM and how we can rectify the error to suit all round.

    Thank you

    Court is an option. Else you can try mediation, or direct discussion with all parties.
