A rerun will be held for the posts of Chairman, Vice Chairman and Director of Youth of the Central Zone Basketball League (CEZOBAL), the Basketball Association of Malawi (BASMAL) has announced.
In November last year, CEZOBAL conducted elections but BASMAL received a petition contesting the results for the posts of Chairman, Vice Chairman and Director of Youth.
The development forced BASMAL to constitute an independent Arbitration Committee whose findings unanimously concluded that although the elections on the said positions were free, they were not fair, credible, and transparent due to some irregularities.
As such the Independent Arbitration Committee recommended that a rerun be held in respect of these three positions.
The elections for the posts of Chairman, Vice Chairman, Director of Youth and Secretary General (a position which was vacant) will be held on Saturday 24th of April 2021 from 9:00 hours at Civo Basketball Court, BASMAL said in a statement.
Meanwhile, nomination period only for the post of General Secretary officially opened on Monday12th and will close 16th April 2021.
BASMAL will announce the names of contestants for the positions being contested on Saturday 17th April 2021 and all nominees are ordered to be present on the day of the elections or risk being disqualified.
According to BASMAL campaign period for the contested positions will run from 18th April – 22nd 2021, 48 hour prior to the polling day at Civo Basketball courts.
