KATHMANDU — The All Nepal Football Association (ANFA) on Wednesday reinsted four suspended officials after the world football governing body FIFA directed it to do so and hold fresh elections at the earliest.
ANFA reinstated VPs Karma Chhiring Sherpa, Bijay Narayan Manandhar and Kishor Rai and Member Pankaj Nembang who were suspended on September 28 last year accusing them of acting against the organisation’s leadership from the executive committee led by Ganesh Thapa.
The ANFA Executive Committee would now hold another meeting soon incorporating the reinstated officials and it would decide a date for the elections to elect the new Executive Committee as per FIFA’s May 10 directive.
The national football governing body is in crisis after FIFA’s ethics committee imposed a 10-year ban on ANFA President Ganesh Thapa on corruption charges. The ban was effective from April 16 last year.
Meanwhile, Mani Kunwar, Bir Bahadur,Santosh Baniya and Khadka, who were promoted to the positions of Vice-President on the same day resigned Wednesday itself.Follow @gorkhapost
