The ASNMSU Supreme Court deemed yesterday that the runoff election for ASNMSU president is invalid, making Evan Conner the president-elect.

The ASNMSU law book fails to define precisely what is meant by a “majority” of votes. The runoff election was held under the assumption that majority meant 50 percent plus one votes.

Conner, who received 41 percent of the popular vote, challenged this interpretation with an affidavit submitted yesterday afternoon. The Supreme Court issued a response to Conner’s motion stating “there are no valid grounds for a run-off election … Presidential candidate Connor (sic) received the most votes and should therefore be deemed the winning candidate for the election.”
