Kathmandu, November 9
The special general meeting of the All Nepal Football Association (ANFA) is being held on Thursday in Hetauda.
The primary agenda of the special general meeting is the potential dismissal of ANFA president Pankaj Bikram Nembang.
An ANFA source told Onlinekhabar that the decision regarding the Nembang’s removal will be finalised today.
In August, a majority of ANFA members submitted a petition, presenting 19 allegations against the current leadership, demanding the dismissal of both ANFA president Pankaj Bikram Nembang and General Secretary Kiran Rai, citing their alleged inability to effectively carry out their duties.
However, Nembang chose to confront the dismissal proposal and brought the matter to the special general meeting. He maintained that, according to the statute, the authority to appoint or dismiss the general secretary lies with the working committee. Nembang included only his agenda in the discussion.
The special general meeting will cast their votes on Nembang’s dismissal today. Out of the total 107 members (including districts, clubs, and associations) of ANFA, only 87 individuals will hold the right to vote in this session.
As per the ANFA constitution, a two-thirds majority vote is necessary for the dismissal of the president. This means at least 58 votes will be required to proceed with the president’s removal.
