Solace President praises ‘remarkable’ Returning Officers
Martin Swales, Solace UK President, has congratulated Returning Officers and their election teams on successfully delivering the General Election – the first to be held in December since 1923, and the second impromptu national poll this year following May’s late arranged European Parliamentary elections.
He said: “It is nothing short of remarkable how Returning Officers and their election teams have responded to an extremely challenging set of circumstances to successfully deliver the first General Election to be held in December in nearly 100 years – and the second unscheduled national poll in just seven months.
“Once again, the professional commitment and dedication of everyone involved has demonstrated that local government has an incredible ability to adapt at short notice to ensure things get done, and done right.”
