THE Federation of Lesotho Rugby (FLR) is set to hold its second elective congress on April 17 at the Lesotho National Olympic Committee (LNOC) office.

An FLR letter issued to clubs on February 17 states that all keen candidates are expected to show their interest of positions by writing to the federation’s Secretary General within 21 days of receipt of the invitation.  

“Members are allowed to be nominated in one position and it has to be stated clearly. All interested candidates must send their curriculum vitae, motivational letter and letter from their club or association. A candidate must have been nominated by one member and two more members seconded such nomination,” the letter reads in part.

However, the letter shows that only members who are in good standing with the federation will be allowed to participate in the election and all members are expected to align themselves with all the conditions. 

The federation’s Secretary General Litšitso Motšeremeli told the Metro that the available positions include that of the President, Vice President, Vice Secretary General, Treasurer, Public Relations Officer, three executive members, women representative and a players’ representative.

“Only the position of the Secretary General will not be contested for in the elections. We are aligning ourselves with other countries and our mother bodies administration structures. For instance, the Lesotho Sport and Recreation Commission (LRSC)’s Secretary General is not elected but is hired full-time and works as the Chief Executive Officer to carry out the duties of the organisation on a contractual basis.

“This is done so that if during the election the entire reigning executive committee is toppled; then the SG will guide the new committee for the growth of the sport in the country,” Motšeremeli said.

FRL’s current President Fetang Selialia earlier showed that he would not be contesting in the upcoming elections as he will be stepping down to focus on other commitments.

 Selialia has been part of the FLR administration since the official launch of the federation in August 2012. 

He first served as the Vice President before he became President.  The first FLR annual general meeting was held in 2017.
