New start for troubled student association

WISAmainTHE Whitireia Independent Students Association is holding elections this Thursday to elect a new executive committee.

This comes two months after a critical audit report forced a police investigation and members of the executive to stand down.

Campaigning for the new executive takes place at the main Porirua campus tomorrow (Tuesday), with positions available including vice president, treasurer and committee members.

Lawyer for the association Bill Bevan has advised members the position of president is not elected, but must be appointed by the new executive committee.

Nomination forms for positions must be lodged with the student association by 11.30am on Thursday, with the election taking place by secret ballot at 12 noon.

There is no postal voting and there are no ballot boxes at the polytech’s branch campuses in Wellington and on the Kapiti Coast.

The auditor’s report published in August detailed poor management of the association and funds that were not accounted for.

Former acting president Tim Manu – who released the auditor’s report to the news media – says he will not stand again. He missed out on re-election to Porirua City Council at last month’s local body elections.
