The National Assembly select committee on Youth and Sports under the leadership of Hon. Alagie Sillah, will today converge at the National Assembly in
The battle for the GNOC hot seat, which has been vacant since the conviction of its former president Lang Tombong Tamba last July, has intensified with yet another controversial and contradicted election date slated for Tuesday 14, in an emergency meeting last Wednesday.
The National Assembly select committee on Youth and Sports, in a press released sent to Pointsport yesterday, calls on the sports fraternity in the country to converge at the Assembly chambers to finalise and adopt a voter list for the GNOC election.
The election continues to cause a public debate among sports organisations and stakeholders in the country due to constitutional irregularities that halted the previous election in controversial circumstances last October.
The release signed by Alagie Sillah, the committee’s chairman, reads: Following its investigative session of 9 December 2010, the National Assembly select committee on youth and sports considered and resolved among others that, the said committee shall reconvene on Tuesday 2010 (Today), at the National Assembly Chambers at 12.00 noon to consider and resolve as below:
Finalise and adopt a voter list for the pending GNOC election and also to set the date for the elections of president of the GNOC as per the provisions of the GNOC constitution and the IOC Charter.
This latest development initiated by the National Assembly select committee on youth and sports could give the sports fraternity reason to be optimistic of a free and fair GNOC election.
