Guam - The Guam Election Commission board will hold another meeting this Wednesday where several election planning items are on the agenda. According to executive director Maria Pangelinan, members will discuss the recent announcement of former governor Carl Gutierrez's withdraw from the public auditor race and whether his name will still appear on the November general election ballot.

"That's for the commission to decide, as far as how we got to here, the two highest vote getters from the public auditor race, though he was a right-in, he was the second highest vote getter, his name comes to the general election," said Maria Pangelinan.

Although Gutierrez announced he was withdrawing from the non-partisan race to return to politics, Pangelinan says she has yet to receive any written notification. She says the board will determine whether any notification is required and the next necessary steps when they meet on Wednesday at 5:27pm.
