IOC accepts nearly all recommendations concerning IOA constitution

IOC accepts nearly all recommendations concerning IOA constitution

October 8, 2022

On August 16, the Delhi High Court ordered the appointment of a Committee of Administrators (CoA) on the back of the IOA’s failure to conduct timely elections. Further, the IOA’s constitution was not prepared as per the Sports Code, which called for the three-member committee to inquire and put down their suggestions post the inquiry. 

The High Court of Delhi required that the CoA prepare a fresh constitution to conform with the Sports Code and prepare a fresh electoral roll.

The order also granted voting rights to those NSFs concerned with Olympic disciples. All other State Olympic Associations were stripped of their voting rights. The ruling stated that denying IOA members the ability to participate in elections would not be accepted. 

Now, in terms of the recommendations placed before the IOC, the Olympic body has agreed to all but two of the said recommendations. Firstly, the IOC raised question marks over the 25% reservation sought for athletes in the governing council and the executive body. Secondly, the IOC has not accepted the clause requiring a two-thirds majority for the re-election of a sitting executive body member. 

Although a couple of reservations have been made by the IOC, accepting most recommendations is a positive step towards putting behind the IOC-IOA saga.
