31. Within four months after the secretary of the Order receives a by-law of a section, the board of directors may, after a prior notice to the section concerned, disallow such by-law by an affirmative vote of two-thirds of the members present.
The board of directors shall exercise such right of disallowance if the by-law of the council of any section is inconsistent with a regulation of the board of directors or the general interest of the Order.
Disallowance by the board of directors shall be retroactive to the date of the by-law of the section and shall nullify every act that might have been done under it.
