Parent Governor question - can I nominate or second my husband's application?

DH is considering a role as a parent governor at school. He needs to be nominated and seconded by a parent of a child at school. I wondered whether it would be acceptable for me to propose or second his application, or is this a no-no? Can anyone advise?

I don't think it anywhere specifically says that you can't nominate your spouse, but it might look better if you ask someone else to do it.

OK, that's what I figured.

I think that you can do it, but it looks as if he doesn't know anybody else who would (and so I'd be unlikely to vote for him?).
