The Normalization Committee of the Ghana Football Association has rolled out the road map for the long-awaited GFA elections.
The road map contains the complete outline and plan for the elections from the Regional Football Association level, the constituent bodies and all delegates who vote at Congress.
“Pursuant to the 2019 Statutes of the Ghana Football Association and the approved Elections Regulations, the Normalization Committee of the Ghana Football Association wishes to announce for the attention of all stakeholders and the general public, the road map and guidelines for the 2019 GFA Elections,” a release on the website of the Ghana FA read.
Nominations will be opened on September 16-20, 2019 for all aspirants across the vacant and newly created slots.
The committee led by Dr. Kofi Amoah has confirmed October 25 as the date for the election of the new President of the Ghana FA at another Extraordinary Congress.
Regional FA election are set to be conducted before the GFA Presidential seat with October 18 set for the regional elections across the regional capitals.
Each RFA contestant is set Two Thousand Five Hundred Cedis (₵2500) as nomination fees with the GFA Presidential seat pegged at Five Thousand Ghana Cedis (₵5000).
Interested parties who will be contesting for a slot on the Executive Council of the FA shall pay a nomination fee of Two Thousand Five Hundred Cedis (₵2500) while female aspiring candidates are to pay a cool One Thousand Cedis (₵1000) for any category interested.
It is, however, unclear as to why female aspiring candidates for any category shall pay a nomination fee of One Thousand Cedis (₵1000) while their male counterparts pay Five Thousand Ghana Cedis (₵5000) or Two Thousand Five Hundred Cedis (₵2500).
This is likely to stir controversy in the Ghanaian media ahead of the elections.
