The Antigua and Barbuda Cricket Association (ABCA) is hoping to host long overdue elections before the end of the
year.
This is according to president Leon Rodney who said they are awaiting the completion of financial statements for the past three years.
“We had a date but because we are in what would have been the third year we want to have all the financials prepared so what we want to do is have the financials finished first and then we set a date so that’s definitely the hold-up right now. We don’t want to have a meeting and just come up with the two [years of financials] and I’d be more than happy to get it [the election] done before the new year,” he said.
Elections were due last year November but never materialised after several failed attempts to get a quorum at the meetings.
Rodney said measures have been put in place to prevent a repeat of that scenario.
“When we had that special general meeting some time ago the quorum had been reduced. For me, I don’t think we had reduced it enough because when the association was really vibrant in terms of members the reality is that the membership has dwindled significantly and what I bring it down to is that a lot of the persons who are members are business people and as business grows, serving the association at the level in which they did changed quite a bit,” the former coach said.
Rodney had previously said he would not seek re-election but has since reconsidered his position and vowed to seek another term in office.
