ACCA Voting Procedures

EDM number 626 in 2015-16, proposed by Kelvin Hopkins on 29/10/2015.
Categorised under the topic of Financial services.

That this House is concerned at reports of voting procedures employed at the Annual General Meeting of the Association of Chartered Certified Accountants (ACCA) during which the President is alleged to have cast hundreds of proxy votes against motions from members calling for an end to the delegated proxy vote system; understands furthermore that a recommendation from the ACCA Council was printed prominently on ballot papers urging members to vote against motions seeking more democratic voting procedures; is further concerned that those ballot papers were approved by Electoral Reform Services Ltd; and therefore urges that those electoral practices be investigated by an appropriate Government agency with a view to seeking reforms to ACCA's voting procedures for the future.

This motion has been signed by a total of 2 MPs.
