A complaint has been filed against a senator from the Associated Students of the University of Hawai‘i (ASUH) by another ASUH member.
The complaint, filed by Senator-at-Large David Enriquez, is calling for the removal of ASUH senator. The complaint alleges that the senator has displayed "gross negligence" to his duties, namely those that require him to attend meetings.
The removal of an ASUH senator is initiated by a written complaint and once it reaches the general senate, there must be a three-fourth's majority in order for a senator to be expelled.
According to the ASUH constitution, a senator can only be removed for: "malfeasance, gross misconduct, failure to perform duties or violation of the provisions of the ASUH Constitution."
The complaint is currently being reviewed by the internal affairs committee and it will be brought to the general senate on Nov. 23, 2016
