Four of the UF Supreme Court Justices outlined measures for future elections cycles at a Wednesday night meeting.
The Justices asserted the UF Student Body Supreme Court's authority in elections with an outline that limits the authority of the Student Senate, details the responsibilities of the Court, and touches on the fall elections procedures, which prompted the meeting. None of these are set until the final court opinion is published.
The Court lifted an injunction on Monday that had postponed the Senate's vote to validate the election. The decision came after an investigation into elections procedures that the Court ordered the Election Commission to carry out.
The Justices decided the Senate has the power to validate the elections in terms of counting votes and assuring accuracy. However, they agreed the Court determines the fairness of the elections.
