Ghana Football Association Set To Elect New President

Ghana Football Association Elect New President

The Ghana Football Association (GFA) has picked October 25 to hold an elective congress to choose a new president, the Normalization Committee (NC) announced on Saturday.

The election and swearing-in of the new FA head will be proceeded by regional elections on Oct. 18 as well as the election of members onto the executive council on Oct. 24.

These were contained in an election roadmap released by the NC, which has formed a three-member committee to supervise the entire polls.

Last week, a historic extraordinary congress held in Accra, voted unanimously to adopt the proposed new statutes presented before it by the NC.

At the congress, 155 members voted massively to adopt the revised statute, which has now become binding on the FA and also paved the way for the polls to be conducted.
