UEG’s 27th Congress set to start on Friday in Split (CRO)

November 29, 2017

The General Assembly will be followed by the election of the new authorities

All 50 member Federations are expected to be present at the UEG’s 27th Congress which is due to start on Friday in the Croatian coastal town of Split.

On Friday the General Assembly will discuss, among other things, the reports of each Technical Committee, presented by their respective presidents, the budget including the profit and loss accounts of the last two years plus a forecast for 2018 and the proposed changes to the UEG statutes.

On Saturday, the elections will be held. Outgoing President Georges Guelzec (FRA), who has led the UEG since 2009, is bidding farewell to the UEG. To succeed him as the 5th President of the UEG, two candidates stepped forward: Azerbaijan’s Farid Gayibov, currently UEG Vice-President and Secretary-General of the Azerbaijan Gymnastics Federation, and Slovenia’s Edvard Kolar, President of the Management Board of the Slovenian Sports Lottery. Also subject to voting: the Executive Committee, Control Authorities and the Technical Committee presidents. The newly elected Executive Committee will then nominate the Technical Committee members.
