So, I found Executive Order #5. It orders:
that the current ASUC executive officers shall maintain their office until the release of the 2006 elections results, in order to maintain the proper running of the association."
Now, the term "release" is used in the by-laws to describe the public announcement of election results right after the count, and before certification. So, even by his old Executive Order, unless EO6 says something different...
1) The declaration after the first count was the "release," in which case Manny isn't President anymore, or...
2) The first count wasn't final.
The EO contradicts the second, since it declares the first count final, but that means he wasn't president to do so. It's essentially a self-contradicting Executive Order.
Note, though, that I don't know what EO6 was.
