Kathmandu, May 27
As Nepal’s football governing body, the All Nepal Football Association (ANFA), is approaching an election for its new executive committee, 54 people have registered their nominations for 21 positions.
ANFA says three nominations have been filed for the post of the president during the nomination window that ended on Thursday.
Top presidential contenders are incumbent Karma Tsering Sherpa and vice-president Pankaj Bikram Nembang. They had made their panels of candidates for most of the positions.
Likewise, Friends Club’s former vice-president Rajiv Raj Poudel has also filed his nomination for the leadership position.
ANFA will hold the elections for the president, one senior vice-president, four vice-presidents, and 15 members including at least two women.
The football-governing body has 87 voters.
