Krishna Omkar has been blocked from having his proposed changes to Union rules debated in the chamber.
Returning Officer Cameron Penny believes that the proposals, which would see the ex-Treasurer’s life ban from standing in Union elections overturned, are a deliberate attempt to modify the judgement of the tribunal which convicted him. Rule 33(c)(x) forbids the discussion of the actions of an election tribunal.
Omkar claimed that he had been threatened with ejection from the chamber if he brought his proposals up on Thursday night.
Jason Keen has been referred to a Junior Disciplinary Committee for discussing Omkar’s case with the press.
Ben Tansey and Mike Dowling were confirmed to stand in the Union elections for the Trinity term Presidency, taking place today.
