Naturally I assume "technical problems" is a euphemism.

The Election Committee seems to have completely dropped the ball, either in
setting an unrealistic deadline and/or in not effectively communicating why
it's been unable to meet the deadline. Pages such as
<http://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/Board_elections/2011/Results/en> have simply
seen their verb tense shifted. For something of this importance, the whole
situation is really rather unacceptable.
