SC president suspends constitution to appoint vice president Tuesday night

(02/05/04 5:00am)

Student Confederation President Nick Terzulli declared a "state of emergency" for the SC on Tuesday to suspend the SC Constitution in order to appoint Kyle Taylor to the position of vice president - an action otherwise unconstitutional. Following the SC Bylaws, the General Assembly, AU's student legislature, approved the declaration at a meeting Tuesday night and gave Terzulli the power to appoint Taylor. Terzulli asked the GA for the "very strict, very minute" power to appoint Taylor. The appointment was previously blocked due to a requirement in the constitution that the VP be nominated from the GA. Terzulli chose Taylor because "the way I was thinking, let's get somebody who knows the job and can do the job well for the next six weeks until the elections started," he said.
