Candidates, both at Branch National and level who had submitted nomination papers in the last elections will not resubmit documents and pay prerequisite nomination fees.

However, should any willing aspirant be left out, they will be accorded adequate time to submit their candidature and pay nomination fees.

For the members who desire to withdraw endorsements and/or endorse a different candidate are free to do so, on the days provided for in the Electoral Calendar.

In its Electoral Road map, FKF has spared days for dispute resolution regarding the voter register, which remains the same in the meantime. These will also involve club eligibility.

The board encourages any individual(s) with such complaints to table the same, within the set timelines as published in the Electoral Calendar, accompanied by:

  • Genuine League standing for all the number of years the club has participated in the FKF leagues
  • Genuine Player Cards for the number of seasons played
  • Genuine fixtures for the number of seasons played
  • Affiliation letter from the relevant FKF branch and/or proof of affiliation to FKF, including any payments (paper trail) made to FKF as affiliation fees.

Due to the covid-19 pandemic, elections will be conducted in line with existing health regulations in the country.
