The Committee to verify credentials begins work

07/09/2009: General House

On 25 June 2009, Brother Sean Sammon, Superior General, named Brothers Juan Miguel Anaya, Nicolás García Martínez, Pedro Vilmar Ost and Patrick McNamara as members of the Committee to verify the credentials of the capitulants.

The authority of the members of the Committee is vested in Chapter Statute No. 26: “A Committee to verify the proper election of each delegate informs the capitulants of the details of the minutes of the election of the delegates. The Committee is composed of capitulants previously named by the Brother Superior General and his Council (cf C 137.4,8).

If these minutes show some irregularities, or if, in some way, certain procedures have made an election not quite regular, the Chapter will discuss the matter and make a decision about it. If necessary it may name a Commission to make a more complete study. The Commission will make its report and then the capitulants will make their decision.

After the verification is complete and the minutes approved, the Brother Superior General declares the General Chapter regularly constituted”.
