AFI removes contentious clause

other Updated: Jan 28, 2013 00:43 IST

Faced with the threat of de-recognition from the ministry, the Athletics Federation of India removed a contentious clause from its constitution and called for re-election to three top posts next month.

The AFI took the decision to delete Clause XIV(b)(1) of its constitution, which required candidates for the posts of president and secretary to be an existing member of Executive Committee, in a Special General Body Meeting. "The Special GBM voted to delete the clause altogether and now anybody can contest elections provided his name is proposed or seconded by the required number of members as required under the constitution," Adille Sumariwala, the current president said.
