New TS Election Issue
After the election results were announced last year, the losing side made
allegations about the election which were later proven to be wrong. Having
failed to win the election where members world-wide voted for their
candidate, an end run was made by secretly attempting to seize the power to
appoint the president not satisfied with the present monopoly of GC
selecting the candidates. But for the Internet and early discovery of the
move and membership outcry, it would have been an fait accompli and members
could do nothing. No public apology was forthcoming from those behind this
blatant attempt. Many thought that, GC members will move on. No, it was not
to be. We witnessed the cleavage shown in the GC meeting held in December
Now comes another piece of interesting information from one of the
supporters of the defeated candidate, which I quote - "For example, the
international presidential contest in 1980, when Radha Burnier won over
Rukmini Devi, was also fraught with differences of opinion."
How many of you have heard of this differences of opinion? I have not seen
any comments from either Rukmini Devi or her supporters or for that matter
from anyone inside TS or outside TS.
What are the details of the differences? It would be interesting to know,
because we do not want to see unsubstantiated statements thrown out which
may sully the election procedures which have stood the test of time and may
cast a shadow of doubt on the legitimacy of the now sitting president.
We who believe There is No Religion Higher than Truth, should search for
Truth when such serious statements are seen.
