After more than a year of deliberation the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) have today ruled the 2011 Iraq FA elections won by Najih Humoud as null and void.
The appellant’s lawyer Nezar Ahmed made a statement on the award.
“CAS considered the elections that took place on June 18, 2011, null, void and illegal and considers their results canceled and the Iraqi FA will organise new elections as soon as possible according to FIFA rules, the current administration of the Iraqi FA has lost its legitimacy is not entitled to represent the Iraqi football.”
The appellants have sent a FIFA and the AFC to activate Art.17 of the Rules of Procedure of FIFA and Art.15 of the Rules of Procedure of the AFC for them to recognise and deal with the Iraqi FA administrative body devoid of legitimacy. And also consider any decisions taken by the administrative body as illegitimate and void and ask FIFA to appoint a temporary immediate based on this exceptional case.
