Executives of the Ghana League Clubs Association (GHALCA) yesterday received a unanimous approval by members to remain in office until the association goes to polls to elect new officers to run it.
By an overwhelming votes of 35 in favour and three against, the GHALCA leadership headed by Mr Joseph Yaw Appiah was charged to steer the affairs of the clubs' welfare body even though its tenure of office had elapsed.
Inside sources disclosed to the Daily Graphic that a date for the next election would be fixed when the association goes to congress on June 19.
Although yesterday's meeting at the GFA Secretariat at Ridge discussed, among other things, amendments to the GHALCA Constitution, the expiry of the executives' mandate almost turned the meeting into a shouting match between advocates of an interim body to run the association and those who favoured the retention of the incumbent leadership until proper elections are held.
After heated exchanges by members, the meeting went into recess to allow for sober reflection by the seemingly divided house on their next line of action.
However, within minutes after the lunch break the issue was put to rest, leaving Mr Appiah and his executives breathing easily when the house overwhelmingly kicked against the formation of an interim body to run the association.
