BREAKING: NEC Elections Postponed
The elections to UKIP’s National Executive have been postponed. Piers Wauchope, the Returning Officer, wrote:
Internal elections are always expensive: postage, printing and the administration of an election costs the party some £25,000. The NEC was faced with spending the money now to ensure a speedy election, or else making significant savings by combining the costs with those of the Independence magazine. This means putting the election back for two months.
They will now take place on 15th May which is handily placed after the local elections which surely now must be the focus for the Party. Although the financial situation remains perilous the ship is now becoming more stable. This allows us to focus on campaigning for an increasingly crucial set of local elections to take center stage.
In addition, there is also the (small) matter of a leadership election. No updates have been forthcoming of the timetable for this as of yet but this will also be another drain on resources though of course a totally constitutionally necessary one. All things considered, although the current situation is far from ideal, the postponement clearly falls into the category of being a necessary evil.
