Assalaamu Alaikum Dear MSA Members,

This is just an announcement regarding the By-Election for the position of Amir (President).

As per the constitution (which can be found on the website), the individual who applied for the position of Amir was not eligible, i.e. he did not have the one year MSA executive experience. However, in cases where there are no eligible applicants, the previous year’s executives along with current executives can approve of this applicant so he/she can run in the elections. As a result, this applicant has been approved and may run in the elections.

The Presidency By-Elections will inshAllah take place on Thursday, November 26th, 2009 from 4-6pm. Location TBA.

If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to email us at

JazakAllah khayr for your cooperation,
