PANAJI: Lavinio Rebello has been re-elected as the vice-president for North Goa in the new executive committee of Goa Football Association.
The elections of the football governing body in the state were held on Sunday at a city hotel. The post of the vice-president for North was the only high-profile position up for grabs in the new committee. Elvis Gomes, the outgoing vice-president for South Goa, had already been appointed as the president unopposed and succeeds Shrinivas Dempo in the top post. Schubert Furtado will take over the duties from Gomes as the vice-president in South.
Besides the post of the vice-president for North, a total of 12 posts were decided through a secret ballot under the observation of retired justice G D Kamat, the returning officer for the polls. The fight on Sunday was for the executive membership posts — six each in Bardez and Salcete. Ilhas and Mormugao had already elected its members — three in each zone — unopposed.
Lavinio, who had served three terms earlier in various positions, beat competition from Welvin Menezes and Babli Mandrekar, both executive members in the outgoing committee.
The six executive members that will represent Bardez are Francis Viegas, Raju Banavalikar, Adv Domnic Pereira, Patrick D’Souza, Gajanan Kerkar and Santosh Bandodkar. There were 10 candidates for the posts including Tony Remedious, Uday Lingudkar, Oscar Pereira and Alirio Lobo who however failed to find enough favour with the club officials in the north stronghold.
The Salcete zone has chosen Arnaldo Costa, Anthony Leo Fernandes, Bishut Themudo, Anthony Pango, John Silva and Jaju Fernandes as its representatives in the executive committee. In total there were nine contenders for the six posts; Joe Fernandes, Joaquim Fernandes and Dionizio Dias being the unsuccessful contestants.
The Ilhas zone has re-elected the trio of Angelo Albuquerque, Sanjiv Nagvekar and Jose Welvin Menezes unopposed, while Mormugao Zone will have Lawrence Gomes, Prakash Naik and Andrew Rodrigues as its officials.
