He said presidential candidates must have good financial standing and must pay registration fee of US$750.

“The candidate must also have good moral character in the society,” he said.

Chairman Joseph said there is room for protest, allowing candidates to file within 24 hours.

He also explained that the posts of president and vice president for administration and operations will be one vote per association, and the winners determined by fifty plus one vote in a category.

“No club will nominate more than ten aspirants for the executive committee level,” he said.
