Remy Damato, ASA General Secretary

by Sandro Micallef

This website can confirm that in a statement signed by the presidents and secretaries of six waterpolo clubs, a request was made to the ASA to call an Extraordinary General Meeting, with the only item on the agenda being a vote of no confidence in current ASA General Secretary Remy Damato. The club representatives who signed this request hailed from the clubs of Sliema, Neptunes, Exiles, Otters, IAISIS and Ta’ Xbiex.

Contrary to reports that appeared in the printed media over the weekend, the vote of no confidence wasn’t also requested for the ASA President Dr. Austin Sammut.

Damato was re-elected as General Secretary two years ago when nine clubs, having two votes each, had cast their votes. On the day, Damato had won with the slimmest of margins, garnering nine votes against the eight votes of George Papagiorcopulo, with one abstention being recorded.

    Sandro – Illejla sar l-EGM. Remy kellu bhala avukat difensur lil John Attard Montalto. Qala tkaxkira 14-4. Smajt li sa ftit minuti ilu, minkejja din id-disfatta, kien ghadu ma rrizenjax. Dan qed jahseb li jaghmel li jrid. Arroganti kif dejjem kien. Ghandu jsir rapport minnufih lill-FINA u lill-LEN, mhux hekk? U hag’ohra, ma taqtax min jistghu ikunu dawk l-4 li vvutaw favur tieghu? Ma tridx tkun intelligenti wisq biex tinduna!!!!

    Without trying to put the blame on anyone I think that clubs should stop pointing fingers at the association and coming together for the good of the game. Whether the secretary remains or not, I doubt anything will change unless those who run the clubs are ready to put their clubs’ interests aside.

    Prosit lil clubs li hadu dan il-pass! Nispera li l-clubs l-ohrajn li ma ffirmawx il-mozzjoni, xorta wahda jaghtu l-appogg taghhom ukoll. L-ASA qatt ma kellha Segretarju jhawwad u jgerfex fir-regoli daqs issa… hemm bzonn jinbidel illum qabel ghada!
