SU Conveners could face impeachment

Two Student Union Conveners accused of breaching SU rules will find out on Wednesday evening if they could be removed from their positions.

Science & Health Convenor Sarah ‘Flano’ Flanagan and Business Convenor Neil Mulhern could face impeachment after Flanagan issued an email to students informing them of deals being offered in clubs in which Mulhern works as a promoter.

The Students’ Union Executive Code of Conduct states members of the Executive cannot benefit financially, either directly or indirectly, as a result of their roles with the SU.

The two Conveners must now resubmit reports, which were rejected at the Last Class Rep Council, and include explanations for the sending of the email.

Under current rules, if the reports were to be rejected for a second time a referendum would have to be taken to determine whether or not the conveners should be expelled from the Executive.

At the last Class Rep Council meeting, the Electoral Council proposed that a vote be taken on whether or not to accept the reports. Sarah Flanagan’s report was rejected by 23 votes to 15. Neil Mulhern failed to issue a report but was still rejected by 32 votes to 6.

Neither Convener attended the CRC meeting.
