More than 180 clubs that are members of the General Assembly of the Libyan Football Federation expressed their refusal to adopt the proposals to amend the system presented by the Libyan Football Federation because of the controversial points.

This came during their meeting with the representative of FIFA on Thursday. The General Assembly meeting, which was scheduled for Friday, was canceled and postponed for 45 days. Sports clubs had decided to form legal committees from all regions to discuss and amend the proposals before presenting them at the next meeting.

According to the clubs, the controversial points are “increasing the number of members of the General Assembly and extending the term of the President to 3 presidential terms without counting the previous ones, which allows the current president to remain in the presidency for a period of up to 20 years, and reducing the number necessary to achieve a quorum instead of two-thirds of the members to half +1."

In addition, the Board of Directors of the Libyan Football Federation, headed by Abdul-Hakim Al-Shalmani, announced that the date of the General Assembly will be held on June 4 in Tripoli.

The Libyan Football Federation published its decision on its Facebook page, and explained that, “Based on the requests of the members of the Federation’s General Assembly to obtain a period to study the proposals contained in the two drafts of the systems and the Federation’s electoral regulations in accordance with FIFA requirements, it has been decided to postpone the date of the Federation’s General Assembly.”

The Libyan Football Federation indicated in its decision that FIFA “expressed its understanding and approval of the clubs’ demands.”
