Yip agree(if he is correct and honest about this), if any person followed the steps as set out for membership and applying for council through the elections process, then I cannot see how that person can be denied.
Except if explicit cases are mentioned in the by laws and valid reasons are given for executing the discussions based on by laws.
Let the official members decided who to vote in.
At end of day if he followed member and applications rules, this can become a ugly legal matter if one has the money and the drive to push it through.
@Pontifier if you want to share this to public then share your email you sent to register membership, share you apostille certificate so we can verify date and confirm transaction on the block.
Then we can request the election support to look into this.
Did you notify them ? and did they respond ? What was their official response ?
I doubt they block your candidacy.
