How to run an AGM: after the elections

To successfully conclude your AGM you must arrange:

Dealing with complaints & objections

In some elections, candidates or others may feel that the process has not be conducted fairly; unfair practices have occurred e.g. bribery; or the election has not been run in accordance with the Union’s Minor Elections Bye-Laws or the CSPs Constitution. Any objections should in the first instance be referred to the RO who should resolve them if they are able.

If a complaint relates to any unfair practices by candidates or others acting on their behalf it shall be dealt with by the Union Elections Team. Examples of unfair practice may include:

  • Disobeying the instructions of the RO
  • Taking unfair advantage of any publication
  • Deliberately sabotaging another candidates campaign
  • Tampering with votes
  • Intimidating any participants in the election
All complaints relating to CSP elections should be sent to the Elections Team.


No nominations & EGMs

    In the case a position receives no nominations, Re-open Nomination (RON) wins an election, or a committee member resigns, you will need to hold an Extrordinary General Meeting (EGM).
