In the event that a simple majority cannot be reached, the Chairman shall have the casting vote. Should a member of the Executive Committee not fulfil their term of office for any reason, their vote IMCA Constitution shall not be transferred to any other member. The Executive Committee may fill any casual vacancies among the officers and any persons so appointed shall hold office until the next AGM. See the IMCA's Constitution paragraph 13
