Malawi24 Live: FAM risks suspension

62

Malawi24 is receiving reports that FIFA may suspend Malawi’s FA for going to a civil court.

This comes hot in the heels of reports that the FA through its lawyers are trying to vacate an initially sought injunction meant to stop the polls.

Malawi24’s Head of Sports, Andrew Chilapondwa had initially reported that the appeals committee resolved to postpone the elections following an appeal by presidential candidates Wilkins Mijiga, Willy Yabwanya and Tiya Somba Banda.

On Friday evening , Malawi24 reported that  chairman of the appeals committee Justice LP Chikopa advised the electoral committee to postpone the elections following the violation of Article 22 (1) of FAM Statuses.

“The violation of Article 22 (1) constitutes a flouting the duties of the Electoral Committee as set out in Articles 2 (1) and 6 (1),(b),(c),(d) and (e) of the FAM Electoral Code,” reads part of the appeals statement.Article 22 stipulates that the list of 36 names of the affiliates be sent to FAM General Assembly at least 15 days before the date of the Assembly.

The appeals committee then directed the Electoral Committee to postpone the elections until there is compliance with Article 22 (1) and (5) of the Fa’s Statuses.

This forced the Electoral  Committee which is being led by Justice Sunduzwayo Madise to postpone the elections as directed by the appeals committee.
