Ag president Watson pulls out of TTFF elections
Trinidad and Tobago Football Federation (TTFF) acting president Lennox Watson, who has been interim president since the resignation of Oliver Camps last year, will not be contesting the post of president at the TTFF elections to be held on November 11.
Watson pulled out of the race yesterday, which was the deadline date for nominations of candidates for the long awaited elections.
On Thursday, former TTFF vice-president Raymond Tim Kee announced he would run for president of the organisation, which he quit three years ago.
Carib Brewery sponsorship and events manager Colin Murray may also contest the position.
A TTFF media release yesterday said that based on the TTFF constitution, the membership of the TTFF has to be advised officially of the final candidates for such an election seven days prior to the election date.
The release also said that the final candidates will be officially announced "on or around November 4th".
The TTFF election will see a total of 44 votes cast. Each of six regional associations will cast three votes, while affiliates such as the Secondary Schools Football League (SSFL), Women's Football League and Football Referees Association have two votes each.
