The president's role in Lib Dem elections

The controversy over Simon Hughes's endorsement of Nick Clegg has reached the Independent.

Pandora quotes a sensible response from Ros Scott:

"It is entirely a matter for the president but, personally, I wouldn't have done it," she tells me.

"The job of the president is to act as a mouthpiece for the members. If, for example, there was a problem with the election, the president would not be seen as independent."

Thanks to Lib Dem Voice.
