Elections Consultative Group

Elections Consultative Group met again today - have mentioned this group's workings previously here - and a clear timetable was (at last) outlined for the internal review of elections held in Edinburgh on May 3rd.

We received confirmation that the final report on all of this is now going to the November 2007 Full Council meeting - I do welcome the clarification over timing, and feel the delay makes perfect sense given that it appears the National 'Gould' report won't be ready until October.

All that said, I do strongly feel we still need - after November's report - an Independent assessment of lessons for Edinburgh ... after all, that's exactly what Ron Gould is providing for Scotland and I simply don't see any good rationale for NOT pursuing the same for Scotland's Capital City.
