SINGAPORE ATHLETICS TURN FOR POWER STRUGGLE

After the joke that was the FAS Presidential elections, another new saga in Singapore's sport scene is brewing. Apparently, Singapore Athletics plans to hold an EOGM, where the current president, Ho Mun Cheong, is planning to remove several members of the national sports association's management committee (MC) at a snap election tomorrow, may be unconstitutional.

SportsSG's chief executive Lim Teck Yin, handed a letter to the contesting parties that the motions proposed for the EOGM, which includes the removing of the MC members are unconstitutional, as for them to be removed, they need to have been absent from three consecutive meetings without explanation, has inadequately discharged his duties, or acted against the character of SA. The opposing camp alleges that the current president had not proven that all of the 26 members of the MC had fallen foul of the guidelines, and thus, has no grounds to call for their removal.
