So, in total 7 people who put their names forward as nominees did not meet the new criteria.
This is from the MEC nomination process page:
The Nomination Process
The Call for Nominations commenced on July 4, 2012. Members interested in running in the 2013 Board of Directors election had to submit a Notice of Intention to Run to our Governance Office by September 4, 2012.
Those members who submitted a Notice of Intention to Run will undergo a screening process with our third-party external election consultant, Watson Inc., during September and October.
Following the screening process, the election consultant will provide a report to the EMCC. This report will outline the extent to which interested members exhibit the desired skills, experience, values, and other attributes outlined in the Nominee Criteria for 2013 (PDF). Using this information, the Board will then select members who are eligible to run in the 2013 Election.
In accordance with MEC's Rules of Co-operation, members will also need to obtain five membership nominations. The deadline for submitting nomination forms is October 24, 2012. Nomination forms, together with certain declaration forms, will be provided to eligible members following the Notice of Intention to Run deadline.
