WF Presidential Elections UpdateIn: Latest News
Latest update from the Electoral Commissioner of the World Federation received by the Secretariat of KSIMC of London on Wednesday 16th September 2009:
On Tuesday 15 September 2009 the votes of the Presidential Elections for the term 2009-2012 were counted in the presence of the Councillors elected at Paris Exco to witness the count, my assistant, observers and one of the candidates and I regret to inform you all that I am not able to declare the results given the procedural improprieties and the conduct of the elections in Gujarat.
Accordingly I am not accepting the Gujarat election results as is for the time being.
Therefore, based on the ballots returned, I am not able to declare the final results including the winner of the term 2009-2012 World Federation Presidential Elections.
Upon reflection of my inquiries the Gujarat election will either be accepted, nullified or there may be a re run.
I strongly advise the candidates to stay away from Gujarat directly or indirectly to ensure free and fair inquiries.
