The results are in on my recent survey asking respondents what they think about an early election. Here is a quick round up:
Of those asked, 68.9% believe an executive election should be called prior to September 2014 ( 44.6% wanting it now) and view CF to be ‘in trouble’. As to who of the current executive members respondents would like to see stay on, Oliver Cooper leads by quite some margin (37.6%) compared to 19.4% for Robert Manning, 13.6% for Sarah jane- Sewell and just 6.6% for Ben Corbridge. However, 22.9% do not wish to see any of the current executive stay on. Of interest, 55.4% of respondents claim to represent grassroots branch executive offices.
The date of the next CF election remains unclear, but if this poll is anything to go by, the executive should consider offering a date asap. Should Cooper wish to stand for a second term, he may wish to call an election now. These polls have consistently seen high ratings for Cooper, making it prime time to secure a second term.
