The Electoral Committee of The Gambia Football Federation (GFF) wishes to remind stakeholders and the general public that nominations will open for the 2022 GFF Elective Congress this Thursday 21st July, 2022. Nomination forms can be collected and submitted to the GFF Secretariat during working hours until 4pm of Thursday 28th July, in line with Article 11.1 of the Electoral Code to fulfil the 30-day mandatory requirement.
An initial announcement of the nominated candidates will be made in line with Article 12.1 on Thursday 4th August before the publication of the final candidates on August 13. The Elective Congress would be held on August, 27, 2022.
The Committee wishes to further remind that nomination forms must be signed by only the President and the Secretary General of the Member of the GFF that is proposing a candidate for nomination. However, in the event that one or both are indisposed and cannot sign the form, there must be a written authority attached to the form where it clearly stipulates the delegation of that authority to the person signing it. That letter should be addressed to the Chairman of the GFF Electoral Committee. The Electoral Committee will also scrutinise and verify the authenticity of the signatures and the authorities.
The Committee further encourage interested candidates and members to acquaint themselves with the Constitution and Electoral Code of the GFF as well as the FIFA regulations as the tools to be used for the electoral process. “The candidate proposed for nomination for any Executive position must be actively involved in football in a recognised capacity for the past five years at either National, Regional, Nawettan or Academy level. This can be administrative, technical, or a member of a committee,” the Committee added.
