The Guyana Football Federation has taken the painfully imposed, but constitutionally obligatory, step of appointing an Interim Management Committee (IMC) to manage the affairs of the Georgetown Football Association effective June 29, 2018 until new elections are conducted in accordance with the Constitution of the GFA.
This action became necessary following that Association’s inability to reconcile the many challenges it faced over the last 2 ½ years that witnessed the stultification in football programmes and initiatives.
These management challenges have been laid bare with the GFA’s incapability, in violation of Article 29  of its Constitution, in convening its Annual General Meeting in April of 2017, despite the many interventions by the GFF to provide management guidance. The GFF has therefore indicated to the GFA that it is “revoking the mandate entrusted to the members of the Executive Committee of the Georgetown Football Association,” and the appointment of the IMC has been taken in conformity with the guidelines and provisions of Article 2 Para. [d] & [e], Article 13. Para. [a], and Article 82 of the GFF Constitution, as well as Article 8 Para. 2 of the FIFA Statutes. In communicating the decision, the GFF informed the GFA that it could “no longer exercise reasonable confidence in the ability of the GFA Executive Committee members to continue holding the various offices to which they were duly elected.”
They were also instructed to “reconcile and return all financial and material assets that are the legal property of the GFF.” The membership of the IMC will be announced in due course.
