Fijian official and Oceania National Olympic Committees (ONOC) president, Dr Robin Mitchell is set to be elected the president of the Association of National Olympic Committees (ANOC) in October.
Dr Mitchell is the sole candidate nominated for election and has been serving as Acting President since 2018 after Sheikh Ahmad Al-Fahad Al-Sabah was charged with forgery in Switzerland.
Dr Mitchell confirmed at last year’s General Assembly in Crete that he would pursue the role on a permanent basis.
The election for president is due to take place on October 19-21 at the 26th ANOC General Assembly in Seoul, South Korea.
Under the ANOC Constitution, an Ordinary General Assembly must be held every year.
The General Assembly elects the President and the Senior Vice-President every four years, as well as the members of the Executive Council.
