The Elective Congress for the election of the Ghana Football Association (GFA) president and Executive Council members will come off on September 27, 2023.

The Elections Committee on Thursday, August 3 revealed the roadmap for the much-anticipated event indicating the timelines and activities to follow for the next elections.

Nominations are expected to be opened on August 7 for presidential hopefuls who would be expected to file and submit for review before August 11. The candidates will be vetted ten days later.

Any decision by the Election Committee from the vetting will be open for appeal until August 31 and the qualified candidates would be published on September 8.

The Elective Congress will then be held 19 days later.

The announcement paves the way for ambitious hopefuls to contest the current president of the Ghana FA Kurt Okraku, whose first term comes to an end in October following his election in 2019.

Former Vice President of the association George Afriyie is set to rub shoulders with the former FA Cup chairman as well as former Western Regional Football Association chairman Kojo Yankah who equally announced his intention to contest the election.
