All clubs within the Malta Football Association will be represented in the Council and all clubs will be entitled for two votes in the Annual General Meeting if amendments to the Statute of the Malta Football Association are approved during an Extraordinary General Meeting which will be held next week.
So far the ten Council members and the ten delegates from each of the Premier League and First Division clubs plus ten Council members and ten of the twelve delegates of Second Division clubs and ten Council members and ten of the twenty-one delegates of Third Division clubs were eligible to vote. This meant that during the Annual General Meeting, Premier League and First Division clubs had two votes each while Second and Third Division clubs had either one or two votes or even none.
If these amendments are approved, all clubs will have two votes as from next month’s Annual General Meeting which will be held on Saturday July 23rd.
As regards the composition of the Council, all member clubs will now be represented. So far, the Council had one representative of each Premier League and First Division clubs plus ten representatives of Second Division clubs and ten ten representatives of Third Division clubs.
