MFA Annual General Meeting – 7th August

Norman Darmanin Demajo ready to battle it out again with Dr. Mifsud after three years ago he lost a close encounter by 4 votesAs the big day is fast approaching many doubts on who might contest certain positions at the forthcoming MFA Annual General Meeting were removed as the deadline for submissions of nominations closed yesterday evening.

There were few surprises, as the only nominations for the role of President were those, as expected, of Dr. Joe Mifsud and Norman Darmanin Demajo. However Paul Bugeja, who is currently assisting in the Finance department of the MFA, has decided to put forward his name for the role of MFA Treasurer. Bugeja, from Rabat, is considered an outsider in this election, and it is believed that he has been pushed and encouraged by Dr. Mifsud to run for this post in the eventuality that Manfre is elected as Vice President, leaving the doors closed for Antoine Portelli who is also running for this post.

Due to the fact that the first election on 7th August will be that for the role of President, it will come as no surprise if Portelli (who supports Darmanin Demajo’s views), withdraws his candidature should Dr. Mifsud be again confirmed President. Three years ago, Bjorn Vassallo had withdrawn his candidature for Vice President after Dr. Mifsud had won a head to head election with De De by just four votes, just before the Vice President’s election.

The nominations which were registered at the MFA yesterday are as follows:

President:

Dr. Joe Mifsud and Norman Darmanin Demajo

Vice Presidents: (Three to be elected)

Carmelo Bartolo, Dr.Peter Fenech, Ludovico Micallef, Alex Manfre

Treasurer:

Alex Manfre, Antoine Portelli, Paul Bugeja

    Mifsud ta rizultati lil-Assocjazzjoni. Assocjazzjoni li tejbet il-facilitajiet taghha bil-kbir u llum f’Ta Qali hemm centru sportiv mill-aqwa.

    Imma mhux dik biss. Fl-ahhar tliet snin, kif kien wieghed Mifsud ha hsieb hafna lill-klabbs. Kienu ghexieren il-klabbs li gawdew minn fondi diretti u progetti min-naha tal-MFA.

    Id-de de xqed iwieghed gdid. Il-holma li l-klabbs jilghabu home u away. Bil-mod. Il Bundesliga jew La Liga.

    Issa jkollok min jghid ghax wara certu zmien trid tibdel. Argument li jghamel sens jekk ikollok alternattiva, li f’dan il-kaz zgur li mhemmx. L-istess bhal mhuwa l-kaz b’ Fr Tagliaferro fil-Youth FA li ilu hemm xi 25 sena.

    Nsomma bidla kapricc qatt ma tghamel gid.
