Further to the notice of the Athletes Commission elections issued on 21st of December 2023 Linked here, we received three male candidates at the close of the nomination period on the 18th of January 2023.
The BCA Athletes Commission guidelines Clause 4.5 Linked here states that:
“……….the BCA Athletes Commission will be composed of at least one male and one female. The male player with the highest number of votes and the female player with the highest number of votes shall be elected; the final player to be elected will be a male or female, whoever achieves the highest number of votes amongst the remaining candidates. In case there are only three candidates for the elections, they will automatically be elected to the commission. If there are only 2 or 1 candidate(s), they will automatically be elected, and the remaining position(s) will be filled by the BCA Council.
As a result of this, the two male players with the highest number of votes in this election shall be elected, and the BCA council shall fill the remaining position with a female player.
