Two jurists revealed to «Emirates Today» that the upcoming meeting of the Board of Directors of the Football Association tomorrow will discuss three possible legal scenarios to determine the legal form of the Board of Directors of the Football Association, following the resignation of Sheikh Rashid bin Humaid Al Nuaimi from the presidency of the Federation. The first is that according to Article 101 of the Statute, the First Vice President of the Federation, Abdullah Al-Junaibi, will be assigned to temporarily head the Football Association, the second is that the members of the Board of Directors submit collective resignations during the upcoming meeting, and then the third step is to hold a general assembly that forms a temporary committee to manage the affairs of the Federation until the organization of new elections to elect a new Board of Directors.
The former President of the Sports Arbitration Committee in the Football Association, Dr. Youssef Al-Sharif, said that «away from the legal form, the resignation of the President of the Federation reflects the resignation of the Board of Directors in full, and therefore what will happen is the formation of a temporary committee that conducts the work of the Football Association until the extraordinary general assembly, within a month, after the resignation of the President of the Federation in order to elect a new Board of Directors», noting that the current Council can continue in which the Vice President of the Federation to conduct the work of the Federation.
Regarding granting the current council the right to continue until the end of its session in 2024, he said that "there is no legal text in this regard, since the resignation of the president of the federation also assumes the resignation of the board of directors that formed its list in the elections, and even if the general assembly grants this current council a temporary period, it will later call for elections to form a new council."
For his part, a former member of the Legal Committee in the Football Association, Abdullah Al-Qadi, explained that the upcoming meeting of the Board of Directors of the Football Association tomorrow will be chaired by the First Vice President of the Federation, Abdullah Nasser Al-Junaibi, in accordance with the text of Article 101, provided that the meeting calls for a general assembly. He stressed that in December 2019, the former President of the Federation, Marwan bin Ghalaita, submitted his resignation from the presidency of the Federation, and the members of the Board of Directors followed him with collective resignations, before the end of the Council's session at that time, and in accordance with the text of Article «151» of the Statute of the Football Association, a general assembly was called, which decided at that time, during the emergency meeting, to form a temporary committee for the Football Association headed by Sheikh Rashid bin Humaid Al Nuaimi, and the temporary committee included 10 members, and this committee in turn called for a general assembly Subsequently, the election of the current Council.
Yesterday, the Football Association announced a meeting of the Board of Directors tomorrow to discuss developments related to the resignation of Sheikh Rashid bin Humaid Al Nuaimi from the presidency of the Federation, and it is expected that during the meeting one of the two vice-presidents of the Federation will be selected to assume the presidency of the Federation during an interim period until the next General Assembly is held, which chooses a new president by election.
