The election results were

Eastern Africa - Seat 6

Abibu Rashid Ntahige - 80

None of the above - 97

Result: The seat is vacant

Western Africa - Seat 2

Dr Adelawe Adedokon - 43

Dr Ousmane Moussa Tessa - 56

None of the above - 78

Result: The seat is vacant

Southern Africa - Seat 5

Lucky Masilela - 79

None of the above - 97

Result: The seat is vacant

So here goes with my maths..
97 > 80 – Seems the result is correct
78 > 56 > 43 - Seems the result is correct
97 > 79 – Seems the result is correct

Number of mails from members complaining about the election results = too many
Number of mails from the losing candidates putting actually lodging an appeal – I don’t think I’ve seen any – so zero.

I am sure it is open for you to lodge some kind of appeal or even go to court if you feel inclined.  But the basic arithmetic as I have presented above indicates that more members wanted to see neither of the 2 tabled candidates to be elected, than this members that wanted to elect either of the 2 candidates.  So you might have to put in a better grounds for appeal, than just stating your opinion that I cant do basic arithmetic, since I don’t think that argument is gonna hold up.

Là Ben de Liquid Telecoms, vous allez loin dans vos allégations!

En tant que candidat, j'ai la conviction que que c'est bien une MAJORITE
qui a jugé utile de répartir leurs voix entre nos deux candidats!

Nous évitons de nous positionner individuellement en face de "ceux-là".
