[] – President of the Guyana Football Referee’s Council Alfred King has admonished the manner of proceedings at the Guyana Football Federation (GFF) Council.

According to King, the Christopher Matthias administration is breaching constitutional rights by allowing Interim Management Committees (IMC) the right to vote.

King said that the congress allows for two types of members outside of association; those being observers and IMC’s in the cases of banned associations

According to King, observers do not have voting rights while the IMCs, just like associations need to have budgets among other things before voting rights can be given.

The associations that voted against the ‘no confidence’ motion against Matthias, according to King, were not constitutional and as such had no right to vote.

He went on to say that they are looking over the possible moves in the days to come as it relates to the Federation.

However, with the recommencement date for the congress expected in the next 39 days, the sport seems to be heading down a dark road.

FIFA and CONCACAF (Confederation of North, Central American and Caribbean Associations of Football) have both expressed displeasure following their observation of the congress almost a week ago.

Both bodies also called for good sense to prevail among the Heads of the sport.
