This year’s Elective Congress of the Ghana Football Association (GFA) is in limbo following the adjournment of an injunction motion by King Faisal against the election.

An Accra High Court was scheduled to hear the case on today, August 30, but that did not go as planned.

Division One League side, King Faisal last Monday, filed the motion at the Accra High Court to stop the conduct of the GFA presidential election slated for September 27, describing it as illegal.

According to the club, the GFA’s statutes prohibit a legal Congress from convening to elect the GFA President until the new members or representatives of the Executive Committee have been duly elected.

As a result, they are asking the court to prevent the GFA from holding the presidential election on September 27 until the necessary elections for delegates from the National League Clubs, Regional Football Associations, and other constituent bodies are completed.

The GFA also announced it had decided to put its 2023 GFA Election Timetable on hold due to the injunction motion by King Faisal.

The Kumasi-based club is seeking a ruling that opening nominations for the election of a new GFA President before elections for Executive Council representatives is both erroneous and illegal.

They also want an assertion that any decision purportedly passed by the current Executive Council membership concerning the election of a new GFA President before representatives are chosen for the Executive Council is a breach of trust, confidence, and loyalty.
