The Antigua & Barbuda Football Association (ABFA) has named an ad hoc committee that will oversee matters related to its general elections slated for May 22.
General Secretary, Gordon Derrick, revealed on Monday that the committee will comprise three individuals including a well-known magistrate and will be responsible for all aspects of the elections.
“It’s a three-member committee that we have put together. It includes Magistrate Conliffe Clarke, [Attorney] Laurie Freeland-Roberts and Peter Quinn. Those three persons will guide the process in terms of the whole elections, go through the nominations and putting things in place for the election,” he said.
“[Additionally, there will be] an integrity commission, which will basically go through the eligibility of the various candidates. They will be asked to do certain things and they will report back to the ad hoc committee who would then continue to operate the election through to its conclusion,” he added.
Three candidates will challenge incumbent and former national player Everton Gonsalves for the top spot when the election is held at the Multipurpose & Exhibition Cultural Centre.
Former executive members, Joel Rayne and Edson Joseph, have both thrown their hats in the ring alongside President of the Tryum FC, Keithroy Black.
Meanwhile, Derrick said the FA is currently awaiting an initial report from the committee charged with assessing the feasibility of capping the number of overseas-based players allowed to represent any one team during matches in the ABFA league.
“I don’t know if they have gone through their deliberations as yet because we are still waiting for a report from them. I don’t expect that to happen in a few days, I expect them to sit down, deliberate and go through the whole process before they make that recommendation back to the executive committee,” he said.
“It is not a critical thing that needs to be addressed today, it is something that needs to be addressed in due time for next season so they are going to meet, they are going to come up with their decision,” Derrick added.
The discussion of limiting the number of imported players in the leagues has been around for some time now with many in the public calling for the FA to curb the practice. The FA has however said that the decision is one that should be made by the clubs.
The members of that committee are former national player, Ivor Luke, former national coach Rowan Benjamin, ABFA media officer Troy Gibson, President of the Empire FC, Elvin Harry and President of the Grenades FC, Sen. Chester Hughes.
