MOSCOW, May 31. /TASS/. The Russian Football Union (RFU) gathered for a meeting on Sunday to discuss the organization's work, including the early termination of the powers of its chief.
A decision to include the dismissal of RFU President Nikolai Tolstykh into the meeting’s agenda over the organization’s financial woes was taken by the RFU Executive Committee on April 29.
Aside from Tolstykh’s possible dismissal, the conference participants will discuss eight more issues, including expulsion from the RFU and the admission of new members, a report by the organization’s Executive Committee, amendments to the election procedure to stipulate the possibility of electronic voting, the election of new members to the organization’s governing body, a report by the Control and Audit Committee and elections of the committee’s members.
The early termination of the RFU president’s powers is listed as No. 9 on the agenda. More than a half of the RFU conference participants are required to vote for discussing the dismissal of the organization’s chief.
If the RFU conference considers the dismissal issue, more than 50% of the participants’ votes will suffice to terminate the RFU chief’s powers early.
If Tolstykh is dismissed, RFU First Vice-President Nikita Simonyan will become the organization’s acting head. In this case, the elections of the RFU’s new head will be held in the next three months.
Tolstykh was elected as the RFU in September 2012 for a four-year term.
