IMPORTANT NOTICE: Changes to the timetable for the 38th World Zionist Congress Elections
Unfortunately, we have had to revise the timetable for the elections for the New Zealand delegate to the 38th World Zionist Congress.
This is due to a delayed response from the Central Elections Committee (CEC) of the World Zionist Congress with respect to the number of signatures a candidate requires to stand. The required number of signatures for a delegate to stand was set too high considering our fairly small membership pool. We sought a ruling from the CEC which has been provided only recently.
The revised timetable for the elections is as follows:
Sunday 28 June at 5 pm – nominations close
Anyone intending to stand other than Arza (NZ) due their being the NZ delegate at the 37th World Zionist Congress, requires 25 signatures from ZFNZ members
Sunday 5 July – voting opens via electronic voting system
Sunday 13 July at 5 pm – voting closes
Between Monday 14 July and Wednesday 16 July – results announced
The New Zealand Area Election Committee endeavours to keep the process transparent and fair.
Eligibility to vote in the elections is currently for anyone who was a ZFNZ member at 11.59pm Sunday 14 June.
Clarification on this is being sought from the World Zionist Congress’s Central Election Committee following a challenge made to the Area Election Committee concerning voting eligibility. We hope that this matter will be resolved in the coming days.
Chair, New Zealand Area Election Committee
