On further reading, actually, I'm not sure it is confused.
What is the basis for saying that current Directors "don't need to
decide whether or not to stand until the day [of the AGM,
presumably]"? Art 17.2 (a) would seem to be rendered moot by the
Election Rules, which don't actually contradict it.
