BREAKING: Vice President of Student Affairs reverses Supreme Court Decision

In an unexpected move, the Vice President of Student Affairs Dr. Rosa Jones has overturned a decision by the Supreme Court of the Student Government Council - Modesto A. Maidique Campus, and has established that the results of the original, fraud-ridden elections will be upheld, alleging that the court “lacked jurisdiction.”

Read the decision by the VPSA

The legal basis upon which Jones acted to reverse a decision legally enacted by the Student Body Supreme Court is unclear, and appears to be in violation of Florida Statues Title XLVIII 1006.24 which stipulates that Student Government may enact internal procedures to govern their administration and operation. Nowhere in the SGC-MMC Statutes or SGA Constitution is there a provision allowing for appeals of Supreme Court decisions to be sent to the VPSA.

The reactions to this decision, announced today, the last day of classes at approximately 6pm, has been widespread on Facebook, with the Farinas Castro ticket receiving congratulations, including from Connor Mautner, former Vice Presidential Candidate, perhaps indicating the decision will not be challenged.
