FIFA Appoints Normalization Committee to Run Madagascar Football Federation
FIFA appoints a normalization committee to run the Madagascar Football Federation.
The Federation of International Football Association (FIFA) had yesterday, November 12, 2018, decided to appoint a normalization committee to run the Madagascar Football Federation (FMF).
A statement from football’s world governing body, says the decision comes in relation to the electoral process of the FMF, which was not carried out in accordance with the regulatory requirements applicable to the members of FIFA.
The committee will be in charge of running the daily affairs of the federation, reviewing the association’s statutes, identifying the legitimate delegates of the FMF general assembly, and organizing and conducting elections for a new FMF executive committee, which should take place no later than May 12, 2018.
The normalization committee will be composed of an adequate number of members to be identified by a joint FIFA/CAF mission, which will take place soon. All members of the normalization committee must pass an eligibility check to be carried out by the FIFA Review Committee.
The normalization committee will act as an electoral committee and none of its members will be eligible for any of the open positions in the elections.
It should be remembered that Madagascar is the home of Confederation of African Football boss Ahmad Ahmad, who became its chief in March 2017.
