JFF Elections Postponed

The  Jamaica  Football  Federation   voting  congress  schedule  for  this  Sunday  at  the  Ruseas  high  school  will  not  take  place.

This  as  Supreme  Court  judge  Andrea Thomas today granted an injunction to Beach Soccer Jamaica which will remain in effect until February 9.

President of Beach Soccer Jamaica Pat Garel filed an injunction in the Supreme Court earlier  this  week seeking  an  order to compel the Jamaica Football Federation to allow Beach Soccer to  participate in the January 14  Election as the entity representing Beach Football in Jamaica.

The Jamaica Football Coaches  association represented  by  Dwayne  Atkinson  had also filed an application seeking the right to vote in the election but withdrew its application today. 

Its lawyer Valrie  Neita Robertson explained that the withdrawal was made because of threats issued against one of the executives of the applicant. 

Today’s  court  action  sees  incumbent  Mike  Ricketts  tenure  as  JFF president  being  extended   until  the  election  process  is  reconvened

In  the  meantime  when the the parties return to court  after the injunction expires, there will be a hearing and the judge which  will  determine  the relevant party to vote on behalf of Beach Football in Jamaica.
