Dear Members,

After the election on 5/31, SAPA-GP’s Senior Leadership Team (SLT) received reports on some voting irregularities, which are not compatible with the related rules of the association. As a result, the election results were invalid. To our best knowledge, neither candidate was involved in the irregularities. 

The Senior Leadership Team commits to improving the voting process so this doesn’t happen again. The SLT also apologizes to both candidates and any anguish this caused. We appreciate their understanding and courage in dealing with this difficult situation.  The SLT is working with both candidates to identify a solution. Both candidates are highly dedicated to SAPA-GP and their contributions are valued highly.
