– Colonel Paul Arthur is AAG GS
Former President of the Athletic Association of Guyana (AAG), Colin Boyce, yesterday officially withdrew an injunction he had filed against the AAG on February 1 that sought to nullify the January 20 AGM and Elections.
Boyce had signalled his intentions of withdrawing the injunction on March 7, but yesterday appeared before Justice Diane Insanally in Court 4 of the High Court to officially withdraw the document.
Boyce told the Judge that his withdrawal was being enacted in the interest of the sport and nothing more. The matter was first heard on Tuesday, February 12 and had been adjourned after the parties involved signalled an intention to negotiate.
Guyana Defence Force Colonel, Paul Arthur, who is the President of the GDF Track Club, was appointed General Secretary (GS) of the association.
The injunction against the AAG had sought to establish that the January 20 AGM and Elections was unconstitutional; it was unlawful, illegal, ultra vires, null, void and of no effect.
Boyce had told Kaieteur Sport following that the aim of the injunction was to ensure that those clubs that have satisfied the AAG Constitution get an opportunity to rightfully serve as opposed to the illegitimate clubs that voted at the elections.
Aubrey Hutson won the AAG Presidency on January 20 six votes to three, but three of the Clubs that were allowed to vote for him were found to be unconstitutional.
According to the AAG Constitution, a club must consist of 10 active athletes; must participate in 80% of the AAG competitions and must not be indebted to the association among two others that bear no real relevance to the subject of the injunction.
Based on that constitutional criterion, Bedford All stars, Rising Stars and Royal Youth Movement should not have been allowed to vote. Running Braves, which Hutson is President, Mercury Fast Laners and Enmore Track Club voted
The Police Progressive Youth Club, which Boyce manages as Police Sports Officer, the Guyana Defence Force (GDF) Track Club and Upper Demerara (Linden) are the three largest track clubs in Guyana and all voted for Boyce at last month’s elections.
