Following the denial of an application for the continuation of a temporary injunction by the Supreme Court, the Jamaica Football Federation (JFF) is now moving forward to set a new election date.
The court rejected the application as the applicants, Patricia Garel and Beach Soccer Jamaica, failed to prove their affiliation or membership with the JFF, leading the court to conclude that there was no substantial issue to be tried.
In response, the JFF expressed satisfaction with the court’s decision, stating that it clears the path for them to determine the new election date through the Board.
The original election date set for January 14 was invalidated when Garel filed an application seeking inclusion of Beach Soccer Jamaica in the election process, arguing that according to the JFF’s new constitution, Beach Soccer Jamaica is listed as an affiliate.
Garel highlighted instances where Beach Soccer Jamaica was recognised by the JFF, including being invited to send representatives to a congress in September the previous year.
Although the injunction granted previously has now expired, the process for setting a new election date is underway.
Incumbent Michael Ricketts faces a challenge from vice-president Raymond Anderson for the presidency.
