The election for the alumni representative on the IBA Board of Governors took place during November -December period. Alumni were given the opportunity to nominate their candidates who were later reviewed for eligibility in accordance with the rules and regulations. Only two alumni filed their papers. There were serious legal issues with the papers of one candidate, including cases filed against the IBA, and by the IBA, and subsequent court decisions.
Only one candidate, Mr. Shahid Shafiq, Class of 1974, was found eligible. Accordingly, the voting process scheduled for December 13-15 did not take place, and Mr. Shahid Shafiq was elected unopposed for the post of Alumni Representative on the IBA Board of Governors for the next 3 years. The next election will be scheduled in December 2021.
