The renegade lobby group has failed to win previous resolutions to remove directors from the MLA board and has not submitted any this year.

President Linda Hewitt says it is pointless to vote because ABA resolutions can be vetoed by the MLA board.

But MLA managing director David Palmer says that has never occurred.

"All I can say is that we should just look at history. Several resolutions have come up year after year," he said.
