Gareth welcomes resignation of Barnet returning officer

Posted Posted by in Opinion   shareShare2016


I welcome the news that Andrew Travers has left his post following the gross incompetence witnessed at Barnet’s election shambles last week. The way in which thousands of people were disenfranchised was nothing short of disgraceful but I am glad to see he has done the decent thing and fallen on his sword. I’m calling for a cross-party investigation into the fiasco and I will be raising this as a motion at the Assembly’s first AGM on Friday.
