GFF INAUGURATES REGIONAL FOOTBALL ASSOCIATION COMMITTEES
The Gambia Football Federation under its Normalisation Committee is pleased to inform the general public that as part of its process leading to the election of new executive in June, has recently inaugurated Interim Committees to assist in the process of establishing Regional Football Associations. The inauguration was held at the GFF Football House in Kanifing on Wednesday 1st May, 2013.
This is one step towards the June election of new executive as contained in the adopted constitution of the Gambia Football Federation. The Committee is set up for an interim period of one month to build up a framework for the creation of Regional Football Associations and to elect Regional Executive members in preparations for the elections on June 29th.
The Normalisation Committee stressed that Regional interim committee members are not eligible for any elective positions neither at Regional nor in the national elections in June.
The general public is further informed that the Gambia Football Federation is preparing to put in the process and procedures to organise elections in June. The process involves rules and procedures recognised by FIFA which will stipulate the regulations of any elective congress as clearly outlined in the electoral code. The Normalisation Committee stresses that like in any other situation; those interested in running for office should meet certain requirements which will be scrutinized and that those who do not fulfil the requirements would be excluded. There would be benchmark for aspirants who can qualify to the various positions and that would be made public at the appropriate time.
The Normalisation Committee takes this opportunity to thank the general public for their cooperation and support and further solicits their continuous collaboration and understanding towards the election in June when new office bearers would assume duties.
