Clarification Letter: Student Government Elections Suspended After Rules Broken

The Richmond Free Press would like to address any confusion regarding the information published on the story “Student Government Elections Suspended After Rules Broken”.

It has been brought to the attention of the Richmond Free Press that a decision was made between student leaders and candidates to reopen the election due to transparency issues and to honour student voice.

A meeting had decided that Article 12.4 had not been broken, under the circumstances that no information was published to the public. Sources state that even though Article 12.4 was not techincally broken, it was felt that the transparency clause had been broken, which led to the decision to reopen the election.

The Free Press and the author have both acknowledged this information. However, the author was explicitly informed otherwise and from multiple sources, obtained the information published in the article. This is information that would evidently breach Article 12.4.

We deeply apologize for any confusion or inconvenience.
