22 days exactly.
To get an SGM together in time for the AGM would have required that the
SGM (and the actual motions to be voted on - thus the language of the
amendments) be announced the day after the initial AGM.
Drafting constitutional amendments takes (us!) a little longer than 24
hours, so to go that path, we would not have had enough time to get an
SGM together prior to the adjourned AGM.
All of that aside, as previously explained, the purpose of the proposed
amendments is to protect ProgSoc from short term political pressures,
such as those that we are now experiencing. If Chi has the numbers to
beat the "silent majority" in the vote for an Executive, then he has the
numbers to beat the amendment and would presumably do so as part of
getting his Executive in. If he doesn't have the numbers, then the
amendments aren't important for this year's AGM.
Consequently, holding an SGM at this point in time to pass these
particular amendments would not benefit ProgSoc at all.
