FRU to hold annual general meeting

THE Fiji Rugby Union will hold its annual general meeting on August 30.

This is after the first meeting on May 31 in Nadi was deemed unconstitutional.

The Fiji National Sports Commission, whose functions and powers are to regulate all matters relating to sports in the country to ensure that all sports and elected officials comply with their constitutions, regulations and guidelines, under its 2013 decree ruled that the last FRU meeting was unconstitutional because there was no quorum.

The FRU constitution clause 33 states that the quorum at the general meeting of the council shall comprise 40 delegates of the affiliated unions. The secretariat of the FRU confirmed that the information previously provided that there was a quorum was in error and there was not an quorum of 40 delegates at the meeting.

During that meeting, the affiliates moved to replace some board members.

However, all the resolutions and decisions made at the meeting are deemed to be null and void.
