I wish I had good news, but there is none to be expected from corrupt people who are wanting to take over and change our Dharma to their liking! I posted this on Standing with Yogi Bhajan because I am so frustrated with them. How to deal with corruption like this? delaying the election and refuse to set an election date.
There is so much polarity and division going on right now in this election process. The SSSC has refused to have an election for over 5 months. Now they are delaying the election again indefinitely. We all need to unite and demand a fair and honest election.
1) DENIED CHINESE VOTES: On October 12th, 2022, the people currently in power on the SSSC board denied the Chinese voters, who had jumped through all of the same hoops that every new voter globally jumped through and were eligible in every way to vote in this election. A very devoted Minister and Professional Teacher Trainer from China, helped the Chinese people to translate so they could apply to vote on the ONLY English New Voter Forms. She and her lawyer met with the "other side" and presented solid proof and legal documents that it was perfectly safe and legal with the Chinese government for the Chinese to participate in this election. The majority members (the other side) immediately called an emergency SSSC Board meeting and voted to deny the Chinese voters. They did this because they held the majority board members on the SSSC Board and were trying to stop us from winning this election by denying the Chinese votes. WE BELIEVE THEY KNEW OUR TOTAL VOTER NUMBERS BECAUSE ALL OF OUR NEW VOTER APPLICATIONS WERE SUBMITTED DIRECTLY TO THEM. THEY KNEW OUR NUMBERS AND ALSO KNEW WE WOULD WIN!!!
2) HUGE CONFLICT OF INTEREST: Right now ONLY Satwant and Kathy at the election team are going through all of our Pro-Yogi Bhajan voter applications. They are acting overwhelmed, incompetent, and confused by our applications. We have told us that 118 of the applications are missing things in their applications or don't have 3 recommendations. They refuse to allow anyone on our Legacy Action Group to assist in sorting out the voter application issues. We have offered many times. We have very accurate records and what they are saying is not true! They want to disqualify as many voters as possible because they don't have a chance to win this election if they don't whittle down our number of new voters.
We have very accurate records of all of our voters and their recommendations. And the only reason we have these records is because people reached out to us on our Pro-Yogi Bhajan website and left their contact information. They asked for our help and assistance through the very complicated new voter process.
WE DON'T TRUST THE PEOPLE IN POWER ON THE "OTHER SIDE" WHO HAVE TOTAL POWER OVER THIS ELECTION! THEY ARE DENYING US THE RIGHT TO HAVE AN ELECTION UNTIL THEY FEEL CONFIDENT THAT THEY COULD WIN IT!!!
3) THEY ACCUSE US OF CHEATING! The "other side" has been publicly accusing us of CHEATING and that our votes were BOUGHT! THIS IS A BOLD FACE LIE!!! We had people reaching out to us because the election process was so complicated and confusing. And since the voter application process was ONLY provided in ENGLISH, the SSSC purposely was excluding our non-English Global Sangat from being able to participate. This is one of the main reasons our Global Sangat reached out to us. Because they couldn't speak English and therefore could not navigate the election process without assistance in translation. That is what our devoted Ministers who could speak their language provided so that the non-English voters could fulfill their right to vote!!!
4) BUILDING INCLUSIVITY AND TRUST (?): KRI, 3HO, and the SSSC loudly touted on their websites as being inclusive to our Global Sangat and that they wanted "TO BUILD TRUST AND INCLUSIVITY" by encouraging everyone who was eligible and had met thE REQUIREMENTS AND CRITERIA of KRI and the SSSC to have their voices be heard and to vote. BUT THEN THEY SLAMMED THE DOORS TO THE ELECTION PROCESS RIGHT IN OUR NON-ENGLISH SPEAKING SANGAT'S FACES!!!!
4) RENEW VOTING CREDENTIAL SITE AT THE SSSC WAS DISCOVERED TO BE OPEN AND WORKING!: On December 15th two of our people working on the YB Legacy Group found the RENEW VOTING CREDENTIAL AT THE SSSC ELECTION SITE HAD BEEN REOPENED AND WAS ACTIVE! This site officially closed on the voter deadline on October 8th on the SSSC Election website, yet it was open and working on December 15th. One of our people actually filled out a Returning Voter Application and submitted it. It went through and was accepted by the SSSC. That is not just a little button you push to activate on the SSSC side. There are steps involved. Of course, when they called Satwant Singh, CEO of the SSSC on it being open two months after the election process was closed, he stated that it was by accident and he would take care of it!!!!
I am turning to all of you to demand a fair and honest election. We trust the Guru and our teacher for guidance and inspiration. Let's keep praying and inspiring each other to work through the challenges of the difficult election process we are facing by DEMANDING AN ELECTION!
DEMAND AN ELECTION FROM YOUR SSSC BOARD MEMBERS! DEMAND THAT THEY PROVIDE AN HONEST AND TIMELY ELECTION NOW!
