Guam - Guam Election Commission executive director Maria Pangelinan says commissioners are expected to discuss the passing of Guam Education Board member Albert San Agustin during its meeting tonight. The former director of the Department of Education was elected in November to serve on the GEC. Pangelinan says according to Guam Education Board laws, the vacancy will be filled by the next highest vote getter from the last election who garnered at least 50 percent of the total number of votes the person that is being replaced received. She says the 7th highest vote getter was Rosie Tainatongo, who meets the qualifications. Whether any action will be taken remains to be seen as the GEC has yet to receive an official notice from the GEB.
