The UF Supreme Court finalized a list of questions about the elections process Wednesday night for an Election Commission investigation.

The Court Justices came up with questions of their own and heard questions from the Students Party and Student Senate Allocations Committee Chairman Joe Pardo.

At the end of Monday night's Supreme Court hearing, the Justices instructed the Election Commission to investigate the methods. They also agreed Monday to temporarily halt the scheduled Student Senate vote to validate the results.

The Commission, led by Chairman Grant Schnell, will compile an investigation report and give it to the court by noon Saturday. The Justices decided to hold a hearing Monday.

At Monday's hearing, Pardo and the Students Party will be able to file memorandums that suggest resolutions to the issue. The Students Party's recommendation is due 5 p.m. Sunday, and it will be sent to Pardo.

Pardo's recommendation is due before Monday's meeting. Each party will have 20 minutes to present arguments.

The court rejected only two questions, both presented by Students Party member Jonathan Ossip. The questions regarded the possibility that student voters could have lied about their addresses in affidavits.

Pardo said he was satisfied with the breadth of the questions certified by the court. He said he was confident the court would find enough evidence to remove the injunction on Student Senate.

"I think that says it all," he said.
