Acting President of the Georgetown Football Association (GFA) Lavern Fraser summoned a
meeting with members of the Press yesterday at the entity’s Head Office on Robb Street to update them about the respective slates that were deemed eligible by the Guyana Football Federation (GFF) Normalisation Committee to contest tomorrow’s election of office bearers at the Sleepin International Hotel on Brickdam.
Fraser, who was the lone representative of the GFA at the briefing, said that the Body had worked meticulously to ensure that all the rules and regulations stipulated by the GFF Electoral Committee were followed hence the approval of the two slates.
”It is the understanding of the GFA that the two slates would have met the eligibility criteria set out by the GFF so approval for them to contest the elections was granted,” Fraser stated.
Fraser, who took over the reins of the GFA in April following the resignation of former President Vernon Burnett told the media that she will not be contesting for any position at tomorrow’s elections, but remain willing to assist in the further development of the sport.
Quizzed on whether she had felt that both slates had complied with the rules and regulations as mandated by the GFF NC, Fraser said that there was one area that seemed to be of some concern and that is the absence of a name for the Treasurer position on Slate 2 which will be headed by Clifton Hicken.
In reference to the issue, Fraser pointed to Article 11 of the GFF Electoral Code for Examination of candidatures which states that: 1. The submitted slates of candidates shall be examined by the electoral committee within 6 days as of the deadline for their submission. Following this term, the candidates shall be informed of the decision (admissibility or inadmissibility) of the electoral committee’s within 2 days and 2. In no event, any new slates or replacements for candidates shall be accepted after the deadline of submission of candidates.
She, however, conceded that the Electoral Body had passed the Slate fit and she was in position to dispute the nonappearance of the name for the post.
Slate 1 which was nominated by Beacon FC comprises- President- Christopher Matthias, Vice-President- Mark Phillips, Vice-President- Akram Sabree, Vice-President- Stephen Joseph, General Secretary- Adepemo Peters, Treasurer- Aduke Woolford and Assistant Secretary Treasurer- Charmine Wade.

The Meeting starts at 11:00 hrs.
