AGM/Election Postponement-Update

In: Elections, Home Page, Hujjat

POSTPONEMENT OF AGM AND ELECTIONS DUE TO CORONAVIRUS PANDEMIC – UPDATE

29 July 2020

Dear Members,

Salaamun Alaykum

I pray this finds you well InshAllah.

Further to my previous communication to members regarding the postponement of our Annual General Meeting (AGM) and elections this year in light of the coronavirus pandemic (which can be found here), the EC (together with the Electoral Commission) have revisited the AGM and election decisions in light of (1) current government guidance and an expected coronavirus second wave towards the end of the year; and (2) the resignation of the President following his election to the post of interim vice president of the WF.

We wish to inform you of the following decisions with respect to the AGM and elections:

• AGM will take place on 20 September 2020
• Elections will take place on 6 September 2020

By holding the AGM and elections earlier than previously advised, our aim is (a) to conduct these key events in the spirit of our Constitution and in a manner which is both safe for members and in accordance with government health guidance; (b) avoid the need for multiple elections (as our Constitution prescribes that, following the resignation of a President, an election for the post of President is also required within 6 weeks of such resignation).

The EC (together with the Electoral Commission, as appropriate) will revisit the AGM and election decisions and arrangements periodically. Should it become necessary to alter the arrangements (set out above) we will inform members accordingly.

With Salaams and Duas

POSTPONEMENT OF AGM AND ELECTIONS DUE TO CORONAVIRUS PANDEMIC

27 April 2020

Dear Members,

Salaamun Alaykum

I pray this finds you well InshAllah.

In accordance with our Constitution we were expecting to hold our Annual General Meeting (AGM) in June and elections in May this year. However, in light of the coronavirus pandemic and based on current government health guidance, it is increasingly unlikely that these key events can proceed at such time in the manner prescribed by our Constitution.

Following discussion with our external charity lawyers and taking into account guidance provided by the Charity Commission, the EC wishes to inform you of the following decisions with respect to the AGM and elections:

• AGM expected to take place in June is postponed to 1 November 2020
• Elections expected to take place in May are postponed to 18 October 2020

Consequently, the current EC will stay in place until the postponed AGM.

The EC considered various other options prior to reaching the decision to postpone these key events – including holding the AGM and elections through electronic means. However, as it is currently expected that we will not need to postpone these events for more than a few months, and with the aim of keeping to the spirit of our Constitution, the legal advice is that postponement is a better option for our charity at this time.

The EC will revisit the AGM and election decisions (set out above) periodically – taking into account, in particular, current government and Charity Commission guidance. Should it become necessary to alter the arrangements (set out above) we will inform members accordingly.

With Salaams and Duas
