FERWAFA Elections 2017: Nomination Process Begins

Posted on Nov 15 2017

The Rwanda Football Federation (FERWAFA) Electoral Commission has opened the process of filing nomination for the FERWAFA presidency and the executive committee. The nomination process starts on Wednesday, November 15 and will close in two weeks, on November 28.

Addressing the media on Tuesday afternoon, the Ferwafa Electoral Commission president Adolphe Kalisa announced the road map to the 2017 FERWAFA presidential polls which will be held on December 30, 2017 at Lemigo Hotel.

Kalisa said, the nomination process starts on Wednesday, November 15 and will conclude on November 28, 2017 at 17h00.

“The electoral code regulation is in compliance with FIFA regulations and there is nothing out of the ordinary that is not in confimity with what is specified in the FIFA regulations. This time round, it’s not only club administrators who will be allowed to vie for the presidency but even former national team players have been given the right to lead Rwandan football,” added Kalisa.

The Ferwafa Electoral Commission is also comprised of La Jeunesse president Nsabimana Boniface who serves as the vice president, while Niyobuhungiro Fidel (Mukura VS), Muhozi Masuhuko Paulin (Gakenke WFC) and Ndashimye Emmanuel (Bugesera Fc) are elected seating members.

Uwamahoro Tharcille Latifah who is the FERWAFA General Secretary doubles as the sectetary to the electoral committee.

The roadmap to the 2017 FERWAFA Executive Committee elections is as follows;
November 15-28, 2017: Picking and returning nomination forms
November 29- December 1, 2017: Scrutineering candidates’ nomination files
December 8, 2017: Receiving petitions and hearing appeals if any

December 12-December 29, 2017: Official campaigning period of declared candidates
December 30, 2017: Elections & Announcing the FERWAFA Executive Committee
