Former Leicester Lord Mayor faces disqualification

From the Leicester Mercury:
Former Lord Mayor of Leicester Robert Wann faces being kicked off the city council for not attending a meeting in nearly six months. 
The veteran Labour politician has not been present at any meetings since May 17, when he handed over the mayoral chains to Adbul Osman.
Under council rules, any elected member who does not attend a meeting for six months is disqualified from being a councillor. 
Yesterday's cancelled audit and risk committee meeting was the last he could have attended before the six-month deadline, November 17, passes. 
Coun Wann could yet attend the rescheduled meeting – for which a date has not yet been set – to avoid disqualification. 
However, his no-shows have already frustrated a number of party colleagues, who say his absence has been noted by residents of Thurncourt ward, which he represents.
