Why FIFA canceled crucial Mali FA meeting

FIFA on Monday cancelled a crucial Mali Football Federation (Femafoot) extraordinary general meeting that ha been set for early this week.

A letter addressed to the FA Executive by FIFA's Veron Mosengo-Omba stated that it was wise for to postpone the general meeting till the end of the top and second division leagues so as to get a clear picture of eligibility of delegates. 

“To remove any ambiguity in relation to the quorum, we are of the opinion that it would be wise to wait for the end of the D1 and D2 championships, which will make it possible to clarify the legality and the legitimacy of the clubs having to participate in the next general assembly," he wrote.

The general assembly was to elect the powerful independent commissions in Femafoot. These commisions are the ones that make crucial decisions in running of football in the country.

However, delegates from clubs coalescing under an umbrella body that goes by initials of CLCM took an exception to the last-minute cancellation.

 “The provisions of article 45 stipulate that any elective general assembly, whether ordinary or extraordinary, must respect a certain number of deadlines. The convocation must be notified 90 days before to all members of the federation. Unfortunately, the executive committee prepared the extraordinary general assembly in less than a month. It is a serious violation of the texts," said Abba Mahamane an official of the lobby group.
