Elections to choose a new Lesotho Lawn Tennis Association (LLTA) executive have been postponed once again, this time to 26 November.
Initially, the elections were set for 30 July 2023 but had to be postponed to 13 August after the Independent Electoral Commission (IEC) formed by the Lesotho National Olympic Committee (LSRC) and Lesotho National Olympic Committee (LNOC) recommended their deferral.
This was to allow the commission to attend
to objections filed regarding some candidates who wanted to stand in the elections.
However, the elections also failed to take place on 13 August after the IEC asked for more time to attend to the counter-objections raised. The elections were then moved to 27 August, but still failed to take place.
This was again after the LSRC and LNOC requested three months to work on the objections, leading to the new date of 26 November 2023.
“The mother-bodies have made consideration to closely monitor the validation undertaking to ensure a smooth and transparent process is adhered to without any compromise.
“Therefore, the elections have been postponed for further three months with a new date to be 26 November so to give justice to the process,” reads a memo written by the mother-bodies.
The LNOC and LSRC have also urged the current LLTA interim committee to prepare for an annual general meeting to be held in September, on an unspecified date.
