The first set of FUFA polls 2017 has been conducted successfully at FUFA House with 10 referees’ assessors elected to the Uganda Football Referees Association (UFRA) Assembly.
FUFA’s 48 certified referees’ assessors had the mandate to vote their 10 representatives. 27 attended but 4 of them were not allowed to participate because they have already been nominated in their respective districts to represent referees.
FUFA Electoral Committee Vice Chairman Yusuf Awuye was the returning officer.
The 10 representatives will be joined by 22 FIFA Referees (2017 list) and 2 delegates each representing FUFA’s 8 regions (Kampala, Buganda, Northern, North East, Western, Eastern, West Nile and Kitara).
They will form an Assembly for UFRA with 48 delegates, who will vote three (3) delegates to the FUFA Assembly on 2nd June, 2017.
FUFA statutes as amended during the AGM in Luwero, 2016 state that one of the 3 delegates representing referees to the FUFA Assembly must be a female.
