ISLAMABAD: The Islamabad Football Association (IFA) Wednesday demanded an immediate roadmap to conduct free and fair elections of the Pakistan Football Federation (PFF) by the end of June 2021.

At a press conference, Sharafat Bukhari, Principal Staff Officer, President Pakistan Football Federation Syed Ashfaq Hussain, President IFA Ch Mohammad Salim, Syed Tanvir Ahmed (vice president IFA) and Raja Masood (member Executive Committee IFA) called on Haroon Malik (chairman Normalization Committee PFF) to announce the election schedule at the earliest to avoid any complications.

“The committee has been given deadline until June 30 to conduct free and fair PFF elections. The committee is yet to take even the first step,” Sharafat Hussain said.

Ch Mohammad Salim said that instead of holding elections, the committee reportedly was involved in taking unconstitutional measures to linger on their stay.

“Any unconstitutional measures to be taken by the committee would be resisted and the matter will be taken to the court. The committee’s chairman is pocketing $6,000 per month while each member is getting richer by $4,000 on a monthly basis. They want to stay at the helm of affairs just to enjoy these perks. Their illegal measures would be taken to the court,” he said.

Tanvir Ahmad hoped that the FIFA would instruct the committee to conduct the election within timeframe given to them.
