SAFA NEC Divided
SAFA's NEC Divide Over Electoral Commission
Reliable Siya sources have informed the Crew that the South African Football Association’s National Executive Committee is divided when it comes to the new Electoral Committee set to conduct the elective congress that was scheduled for 24 March 2018.
Yesterday SAFA issued a statement confirming that the elective congress to elect a new SAFA president was postponed due to a unanimous decision undertaken by the NEC in order to address any issues that may impact the credibility of the congress.
Now reliable sources have indicated that members of SAFA’s NEC are divided over the new Electoral Committee. Though it was initially believed that all members unanimously agreed to the new Electoral Committee following the withdrawal Electoral Commission of South Africa, indications are that there are those who are opposing the decision which has resulted in the postponement of the electoral congress.
As things stand current SAFA President Danny Jordaan stands unopposed for a second term as president following the withdrawal of former PSL referee Ace Ncobo from the presidential race earlier this month.
Ncobo’s withdrawal stemmed from his dispute over the fact that the elective congress was not being conducted in an ethical manner in accordance to SAFA’s statutes resulting in the withdrawal of the IEC.
SAFA are yet to confirm the new date to conduct the elective congress.
