Nomination Court Statement with regards to Highlanders F.C election
It has come to the attention of the Nomination Court that there is an influx of people visiting the club’s offices to renew membership.
It should be noted that the members who will qualify to vote on Sunday the 28th March 2021 are those that fulfil the following constitutional requirements;
- a) Article 10.4; â€œOnly those members who will have held valid membership cards for at least 12 months immediately before ballot shall be eligible to attend and vote at all general meetings”. In this regard the cut-off date for the purpose of the election is 28 March 2020.
Meaning those who qualify to vote should have become members on or before 28 March 2020 NOT after that date.
- b) Article 5.7; â€œA subscribing member who fails to pay his annual subscription by 31st January of each year shall automatically lose his/her membership”.
