Chairman of the Canefield Urban Council Simeon Albert has been voted back in – though he will not be considered chairman until the necessary procedures are conducted.
The council held its general elections yesterday in which four members including Albert were elected out of nine candidates.
At present, there is a tie between candidates Evander Joseph and Joyce Dupuis. A recount is currently being conducted to decide who will fill the fifth spot on council’s management team.
Five persons are required to run the affairs of the council.
The possibility of the election was questioned by many following reports that Michael Coipel, a candidate who had been disqualified, had allegedly filed an injunction to prevent the proceedings.
More details on this matter later.
