Cape Town - Two Presidential nominations were received by close of business on February 23 as SAFA prepares for the March 24 Elective Congress to elect new office bearers.

According to KPMG Auditors who received the nominations, a total of 53 nominations were submitted with incumbent SAFA President, Danny Jordaan receiving 52 nominations while former referee, Ace Ncobo received 1 nomination.

The nominations have been forwarded to all SAFA members and going forward, the electoral process will now be exclusively in the hands of the Electoral Committee, in this case, the Independent Electoral Commission.

The IEC will scrutinise the candidates as mandated by the SAFA Electoral Code to determine compliance in accordance with Article 25 of the SAFA Statutes.

"We shall thereafter inform all Members of the IEC’s decisions following their background and eligibility checks as required by the SAFA Statutes and SAFA Electoral Code," said SAFA CEO Dennis Mumble.

Number of nominations submitted: 53

Danny Jordaan received: 52 nominations

Ace Ncobo received: 1 nomination
