National Athletics Federation elections

January 25, 2014 

THE entire Uganda athletics federation executive plans to stand for re-election next month.

According to the federation president Dominic Otuchet and other executive members confirmed that they will seek another term during the quadrennial polls that are set for January 25, 2013 at Lugogo. 

Uganda Olympic Committee president William Blick will be the returning officer at the assembly.

“I have already my intentions of seeking office clear and the way it stands, all the other seven members, who have been serving in the elective office are also coming back. We are yet to know  whether there will be other members that will be seeking for re-election  but at least we have all declared our interest,” said Otuchet, who will be seeking for a third term in office.

Unlike other federations, there is no prior declaration of interest in positions as nominations are set to be done on the floor on the day of the elections.

Currently, districts, who are the members of the federation, are nominating the officials that will represent them at the one day assembly, which comes a month after the general assembly was held.

“They are supposed to send their delegates and it is from these delegates that the executive will be elected.”

The current executive has Otuchet as the president with Peter Okot Omony and Lawrence Kavuma as his technical and administration vice president.

Beatrice Ayikoru is the secretary general while Faustino Kiwa, Godfrey Nuwagaba and Namayo Mawerere are the respective organising secretary, treasurer and publicity secretary respectively.
