Stakeholders react to proposal for JFF constitutional changes

Report by RJRGLEANER Communications Group Sports Reporter Kayon Raynor

Various stakeholders have reacted to Radio Jamaica Sports’ story aired last Saturday about a proposal from the Jamaica Football Federation (JFF) to increase its voting delegates from 13 to 60. President of the St Ann FA, Danny Beckford says he's  surprised by the latest proposal.

The veteran administrator says he is not aware of the 60 votes, as when the board met, it was decided that 45 would be the number, but was later told that it was increased to 71.

Former FIFA referee Peter Prendergast, who was one of the voices calling for change, says it's only fair to give the stakeholders a say in the decision making.

Sports Co-ordinator of the Jamaica Independent Schools Association (JISA) Winston Keyes, is glad that they will be among the voices. The Inter Secondary Schools Sports Association (ISSA) was there before but was removed in 2007.

After more than a decade, they too will have a say. ISSA president Keith Wellington says it's only fair, based on their contribution to the youth programme.
The proposal which was sent to FIFA in August of last year, will be presented to the JFF board at a special congress on its return.
