Who can be AFFA president? – VIDEO

"It is clearly written in the institution's charter about who can be the president of AFFA."

"34 members can apply to AFFA regarding the presidency and the Executive Committee".

This was said by Yashar Seyidov, the former AFFA Executive Committee member who was a guest of the Idman Bizde program.

The president of Dinamo, which competes in the II League, announced his views on the upcoming presidential elections in AFFA. He said that the Executive Committee has already set a quota for 34 members: "If AFFA President Rovnag Abdullayev would run again, he would certainly have the right to vote directly. But because he did not use this right, the number decreased from 35 to 34. The Executive Committee consists of 13 people, one of whom is the AFFA president. 5 out of 12 people are selected from Premier League clubs, 2 each from Regional Football Federation, Field Football Federations and Public Unions.”

Seyidov also mentioned what criteria are required to become AFFA president: "Who can be AFFA president? The charter clearly states that direct and indirect members of the organization who are related to football and whose activity is due to active football can hold this post. They must submit their candidacies to AFFA 15 days before the start of the Report-Election Conference. 10 days before the election, the general secretary should send the latest information about the members directly to the members. After that, nominations for the AFFA presidency and the Executive Committee can no longer be made. Because the procedure is finalizing. Then we will all wait for the Report-Election Conference."

It should be noted that AFFA's Next Report-Election Conference will be held on April 2.
