  • On the 9th of October 2019, the Election Committee received a copy of the original Constitution of CMCC (submitted to the Charity Commission on the 06th April 1997) from Brother Ramazan (Acting Chairman). After adequate verification of the document, It is our duty to uphold the  current constitution to the best of our ability, in a practical and rational way. We are pleased to announce a brief plan for the election process.Ideally, constitution of charities and organisations should develop, adapt and should strive to be constitutionally compliant at all times, however this has not been the case for CMCC. It is important to understand and recognise these are challenging and difficult times, and we really appreciate your patience and understanding.  After seeking advice from several independent sources including the 'Muslim Council of Britain', we have reached a practical and logical solution to hold independent, transparent and fair elections.


    Membership

    The constitution states in Section B Article 4 (ii)In order for a person to be entitled to vote, she/he should be a registered member of the CMCC”. To date, there has been no mechanism put in place for an up-to-date  process to maintain a register for the community members. In line with present day legislation, any personal data collected and stored, should be subject to GDPR regulations. The Election committee has requested the Trustees to approve and adopt GDPR policy to ensure that registration process is reviewed, updated and is GDPR compliant with UK Legislation. 

    Submission of Registration applications will be made available online: 

    Between Friday 25th of October 2019 and Tuesday 19th of November 2019 11:59pm.

    Board of Trustees (Advisory Elections)

    There is a clear conflict in Constitution of 1997 regarding the election for the Trustees. The election committee proposes to hold an Advisory Election of the Trustees on the same day,  in order to facilitate, guide and suggest a possible course of action to the new Executive Committee. 

    Once the Trustees have been elected by the public, It is entirely within the newly elected Executive Committee's discretion to take into account the results of the Trustee advisory election. Please be aware that the Executive Committee might or might not want to take into account the results of the advisory election.
