Based on the turn out of events, Kurt Okraku will be staying on as the FA President with no re-election ordered.

The decision of the GFA Elections Committee to disqualify Wilfred Kweku Osei, affectionately called Osei Palmer from the 2019 GFA Election is valid, according to the ruling by the Court of Arbitration for Sports (CAS).

Based on the turn out of events, Kurt Okraku will be staying on as the FA President with no re-election ordered.

After several postponements, CAS on Wednesday morning delivered the verdict which is likely to bring finality to a long protracted legal process.

The legitimacy of the current leadership of the FA was contested by Osei Palmer at the Court of Arbitration for Sports.

Found guilty of breaking GFA codes, Osei Palmer was thus prevented from contesting the elections that saw the arrival of Kurt Okraku and eleven other Executive Council members.

The verdict means unless some monumental happens, Palmer may not be able to stand for any future election in the future.

Ebo Appiah, spokesperson of Osei Palmer, in an interview with an Accra-based FM station ,  admitted receiving the verdict from CAS. He said despite the disappointment they are ready to assist the current administration going forward.

“Palmer is calm and he is a sportsman who knows that you will either win or lose. He is calm and not down.” Ebo said.
