Will he fight?
Of course Mostafavi does not necessarily have to go as a result of the vote. In any event his contract has more than a year to run, since he acted in a highly responsible way by declaring that he wanted a further term well in advance of the latest date by which he could declare.
This now means that the AA council, headed by president Eva Jiricna, could advertise the job and Mostafavi could apply for it, even though it was stated before the latest vote that he would not do so. Some are saying that the vote was so close that he clearly has huge support within the school and might well do better than any other potential candidate.
