1. COSLA - ELECTION OF PRESIDENT AND VICE-PRESIDENTS

With reference to Article 6(b) of the minute of meeting of the Council held on 13 May 1999, there was submitted the letter dated 29 April 1999 from COSLA drawing the Council’s attention to the provisions of the Constitution of the Convention relevant to the election of the principal office bearers, namely the President and two Vice-Presidents.

The letter noted that one of the Vice-Presidents required to be elected from nominees, being a representative of a Council who was not a member of the political group or coalition which formed the majority in the Convention. The nomination would be valid only if made by the representative’s own member Council and was supported by one other Council.

The Committee agreed:-

(i) to nominate Councillor Murray for the office of Vice-President referred to above; and

(ii) to note that the nomination would be supported by Clackmannan Council.
