By Aaron Humes: The thirteenth Ordinary Congress of the Football Federation of Belize (FFB) is going ahead on Saturday in San Ignacio Town with the blessing of authorities, according to FFB President Sergio Chuc.
Today, the town’s police detachment was scheduled to do a final walkthrough of the venue, the San Ignacio Hotel a few minutes from downtown, after initial approval was given by the Officer Commanding the Western Formation, Chuc told us via telephone on Thursday.
But his opponents, including the Belmopan and Stann Creek Football Associations and candidates hoping to take over from him on the FFB executive, said he is flouting the regulated ten persons per gathering under current State of Emergency Regulations despite using multiple rooms at the hotel.
Chuc explained yesterday that having already postponed the Congress twice, giving 60 days’ notice each time, the Federation could not afford a third postponement and extension of his own mandate.
The specifics of the plan are on the FFB’s Facebook page, but Chuc explained that essentially, delegates, members of the Executive and the Electoral Committee would be in separate rooms linked by technology.
For the election to be held, under the leadership of the Electoral Committee, none of the candidates including Chuc himself will be at the San Ignacio Hotel. Chuc says he lives five minutes away and will be told whether he is elected or not, after which he will decide to head back to the hotel to accept.
Chuc was elected three years ago to succeed Ruperto Vincente but his term has been shadowed by questions about his leadership style and stewardswhip of the organization.
