RIBA president Paul Hyett has renewed his attack on the ARB after details of recent elections emerged this week.
A breakdown of voting figures shows that 'curb-the-ARB' candidate Ian Salisbury was clearly the most popular. Salisbury was the only candidate of the seven elected who won through in the first round of counting.
Hyett said the results showed architects wanted the ARB to back off. 'This election is further evidence that the profession wants an independent registration body that deals with complaints competently and keeps the register. No more, no less.'
The ARB said it was unable to comment.
