The student body president election will now be held on Friday.
Paul Kushner, chairperson of the Board of Elections, said the board decided on the schedule after the hold on the election was lifted Wednesday.
“We are going to stick by that timeline unless we hear otherwise from some other body,” Kushner said.
The UNC Student Supreme Court lifted the injunction after Travis Broadhurst requested his complaint be dismissed.
In a statement, Broadhurst said he decided to drop the complaint so the election process will come to an end.
“It has recently come to light that if this election cycle remains delayed, university administration is almost guaranteed to intervene, and administration’s interference in Student Government elections would threaten the very fabric of our 98-year-old student self-governance system,” he said.
Broadhurst said he stands by the principles of his complaint.
“While I maintain — and always will — that the Board of Elections violated the Student Code, this entire election cycle has dragged on far too long, and there are more important issues at stake,” Broadhurst said in the statement.
Maurice Grier and Elizabeth Adkins are the two candidates on the ballot. Kushner said there will also be a write-in option.
