Chairpersons Withdrawal from Election Process is Wrong

Ruperto Vicente

With Chuc out of the way, Ruperto Vicente and Marlon Kuylen will go head-to-head in a few weeks at the annual congress. In the 2016 elections, after twenty-two rounds of voting, there was no clear winner between Chuc and Vicente, and Marlon Kuylen, was appointed to hold over as president. But will the election follow through if voting members don’t show up on June twenty-fourth? On Monday, Chuc told the media that several chairpersons have pledged not to attend the congress to prevent the elections. Vicente cautions that there are repercussions to these actions.

 

Ruperto Vicente, Presidential Candidate, F.F.B. Executive

“A chairman, a chairperson, to sign on to a letter making that decision is illegal. You’ve got to go to your congress because it is your congress that you represent at the F.F.B. congress. So you gotta go to your district congress to get that vote to say you are not going to congress. So them signing on to that letter is illegal because they have not met with the executive and they had not met with the members of their congress. Secondly, Mister Chuc has also made another mistake here is that by influencing these people not to report to a congress; that is another offense in the FIFA Code of Ethics. That the person who influence others not to or to boycott the congress of the F.F.B. and to boycott the workings of the F.F.B. open themselves to further sanctions and suspension from football. That is a dangerous path that these people or that Mister Chuc is leading these people into.”
