Praia, Jan 28 (Inforpress) – Karate athlete Carlos Varela, initially appointed as candidate for the election to Cabo Verdean Karate Federation, complain the way in which Saturday’s general assembly was conducted, claiming to be “wounded by illegality”and asks for the annulment of the electoral process.
Speaking to Inforpress, Carlos Varela said that his team will take this challenge “to the last consequences” with the Directorate-General for Sports and judicial bodies, as he understands that the process led João Correia to the presidency of the board “was completely flawed process”. He claimed that this was the reason led his team to be absent from that scrutiny.
For Carlos Varela, the board of the general assembly was made up of members of the list of the re-elected candidate representing the sports regions of Fogo, Boa Vista, Santo Antão and São Vicente and who at the same time conducted the election, which is why, he was adamant that “it was a completely wrong and flawed process”.
“Mr. João Correia’s re-election to FCK’s presidency is just another premeditated maneuver to keep him ahead of FCK. This is because, the entire election process was conducted without complying with the regulations of the FCK and the Electoral Commission”, explained Varela in this challenge, claiming that these elements were at the behest of the reelected chairman himself.
