After three days of voting, the Arts and Sciences Federation of Associations did not get their $0.12 fee-levy increase.

A total of 206 students voted during polling which ran from Nov. 28 to 30, which is short of the 505 mark they needed, according to ASFA CEO Camila Delgado.

The vacant executive position of Vice President of Communications and Promotions will also remain empty for the time being. ASFA will be appointing an interim VP in January according to current ASFA VP Finance, Christina Massaro.

ASFA represents about 20,000 students within Concordia’s Arts and Sciences programs.
