The International Federation of Association Football (FIFA) Normalisation Committee (NC) at the Namibia Football Association (NFA) announced the new developments in a letter signed by the vice-chairperson of the NC, Franco Cosmos, addressed to all regional chairpersons and NFA members.
The 28th NFA ordinary congress will take place in Windhoek, with the actual venue and time to be communicated on a later date.
Cosmos said members have until 14 January 2020 to nominate potential executive members, presidents and vice presidents of the NFA.
Cosmos said the members are free to nominate anyone who has been involved with football in any capacity in Namibia for four years.
“We are giving them time to nominate their preferred candidates. The notice just went out and we are giving them enough time to submit their nominations,” he explained.
Cosmos added that the Namibia Premier League remains suspended hence they will not be able to nominate or vote in the upcoming congress.
“The congress will actually decide if the sanction is to be lifted or they will be expelled or keep the status quo for the NPL, he said.
The NFA was thrown into turmoil in December 2018 when the previous executive committee led by Frans Mbidi failed to hold elections, leading to the appointment of an NC by FIFA.
The mandate of the NC was to ‘normalise’ the abnormal situation in which the Namibian football found itself in, with many of its members said to be in bad standing with the mother body.
