Gor Mahia elections will only be held towards the end of the year, the club chairman Ambrose Rachier has declared, calming the calls from club stakeholders to have the polls held immediately.
Rachier, speaking during the unveiling of a sponsorship deal with SportPesa, Rachier said holding polls at the moment will disrupt the team’s progress and further stated that his four year term is not yet up, as provided for in the Sports Act.
The chairman, who vied and lost in the National FKF elections conducted in February, called on the disgruntled club members to concentrate on building the club for the time being ahead of the elections.
“I still have a year and some months to go on my tenure because the Sports Act stipulates that I should be in office until August 2017, that is four years before we can organize elections. Furthermore, we cannot hold elections when the season is underway.
“We will thus have the elections towards the end of the year, either in November or December this year so the people making noise should stop and concentrate on building the club. When the polls come they can declare interest and contest,” he said.
