No special election for Retirement Fund board vacancy

by Ken Quintanilla

Guam - The Guam Election Commission will not be holding a special election to fill the vacancy on the Government of Guam Retirement Fund board election. A seat was left vacant following the retirement of board member George Santos last month. GEC executive director Maria Pangelinan says only one person turned in a nomination packet but failed to meet the number of qualified signatures.

She says based on the Guam Code Annotated, the Retirement Fund board of trustees through a majority vote shall instead select an interim member.

The GEC meanwhile also submitted the Election Comparative Analysis Report for the 2012 General Election to the Guam Legislature and the Governor's Office. GEC executive director Maria Pangelinan says the over-140-page report is mandated by law and includes statistics from the last election along with expenses and information on provisional ballots. The report was initially due on June 30.
