Libya elects first FA president



The Libyan Football Federation (FLF) on Sunday elected its first president since its founding in 1962.

Anouer al-Tachani emerged winner of the vote that saw the participation of over a hundred clubs.

The lawyer and businessman formerly worked with the management of Attahadi Benghazi Football Club and was a member of the Libyan Commission of Litigation, Competition and Footballers Affairs.

Under the old system, the football federation was under the control of the family of former Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi, in particular his sons Saadi and Mohammed.

The new structure now has 12 elected members, who have been mandated to draw a new statute for the body during their one-year term.

The domestic league has not resumed since the fall of the former regime in 2011, due to continued insecurity in the country.

Libyan were stripped of the right to host the 2013 Africa Cup of Nations, which was eventually held in South Africa. However, the authorities are bidding anew to host the 2017 edition.

The Libyan Ministry of Youth and Sports last year began reforms in football clubs with the decision to allow the teams elect their boards of directors unlike in the past.
