GCA prevented from holding elections following Court action
The Georgetown Cricket Association (GCA) was prevented from their holding their Annual General Meeting and elections last night at the Malteenoes Sports Club.
Kaieteur Sport was made to understand that Nazimul Drepaul, a life member of Everest Cricket Club obtained an injunction from the High Court of the Supreme Court of Judicature which was served to executive members of the GCA yesterday afternoon. Some of the grounds on which the injunction was filed are, a declaration that the resolution purportedly passed by the GCA at their AGM in January 2012 which is to extend the term of office for the president to two years to be null and void. That the notice of the 2014 AGM of the GCA published in Guyana Chronicle on January 17 for the meeting is contrary to the constitution. The AGM of the GCA on 2014-02-19 is contrary to clause 13 of the rules of the association.
The executive members of the GCA will have to respond to the injunction on February 27 in the High Court in front of Chief Justice Ian Chang.
Clubs and delegates gave the impression that they will have their say and will not be denied whenever the elections are being held and feels that their interest were not best served last night.
