GFA Elections Head For Run Off As Amanda Clinton And George Ankamah Get Zero

A historic day in Ghana football as 120 delegates go to the polls to elect a new president for the Ghana Football Association (GFA).

Two former vice presidents are up against a former Executive Committee member and three persons who held no roles in the former administration.

For the first time in thirteen years the GFA is set to have a new president and after months of campaigns, the showdown comes off today at the College of Physicians.

George Afriyie, Kurt Okraku and Nana Yaw Amponsah are seen as the favourites but Amanda Clinton, George Ankomah Mensah and Fred Pappoe could pull a surprise.

Ahead of the today’s elections, there were the Regional Football Associations and Executive Council elections with some shocking results giving credence to the famous ‘fear delegates’ quote.

A potential injunction was hanging around the elections but just this morning the Court of Arbitration for Sports released a statement rejecting an appeal of injunction by disqualified candidate Wilfred Osei Kwaku Palmer.

The first round of the ongoing Ghana Football Association at the College Physicians and Surgeons to elect new President for GFA has come to an end. Since no one won a majority votes of 50% + 1, the election is set for a second round.

At the end of the election, Kurt Okraku got 44, George Afriyie had 40 votes, Nana Yaw secured 27 votes and finally, Fred Pappoe had 6 votes. Amanda Clinton and George Ankamah got zero.

The winner is expected to secure a minimum of 61 votes to be proclaimed the president of the Ghana Football Association.

Per the regulations, the first four candidates will face off in a runoff. Kurt Okraku, George Afriyie, and Nana Yaw are currently battling for the position in round two.

Fred Pappoe sadly pulled out as it headed for the second round. As at the time this report was curated, the second round was still in session. will keep you posted.
