ResSoc has restarted its executive election following the nullification of results on Jan. 23.

In an online statement, the Residence Society wrote the decision was due to “the timing of removing campaign material” and a ruling made by the AMS Judicial Committee on Jan. 23, calling for a re-election from Feb. 1 to 2.

Team NOM’s Vice-President of Judicial Affairs candidate Oliver Flis, Comm ’20, wrote the winning team was “incredibly stunned” by the nullification in a statement to The Journal.

He also confirmed the nullification was due to a “failure to remove campaign material.”

Team NOM was made up of Presidential candidate Madison Scott, ArtSci ’20, Vice-President of Residence Affairs candidate Natasha Sharma, Con-Ed ’20, and Vice-President of Judicial Affairs candidate Oliver Flis, Comm ’20.

The team originally won the election on Jan. 22 with 59 per cent of the vote while Team SBB earned 41 per cent.

The Society will hold its nomination period until Jan. 29 at 9 p.m.
