Guam – In a hastily called Special Session Monday afternoon, Guam lawmakers unanimously passed a measure that will allow the Guam Election Commission [GEC] to reconfigure its primary election ballot in order to make room for independent candidates.
Bill 488 was approved by a vote of 11-0, with 4 excused absences.
If the Governor signs the measure into law, the Guam Election Commission will be able to place independent Delegate candidate Jonathan Diaz on the Primary Election ballot.
The last minute session was called by Speaker Won Pat after the GEC board ruled Saturday that the current law did not specify where on the ballot an independent candidate would be placed.
