Mr. Kurt Edwin Simeon Okraku, Chief Executive Officer of Dreams FC has been elected the new President of the Ghana Football Association.

His confirmation came via a 96.9% yes approval (93 votes) at the GFA congress in Accra on Friday.

Kurt was the only candidate in the third round of voting after two earlier rounds failed to produce an outright winner while his closest challenger, George Afriyie of Liberty Professionals conceded defeat.

The final round was still necessary to validate his election, and Mr. Kofi Amoah, Chairman of the Normalisation Committee, confirmed his new status after what he said was a “quite transparent process”, telling Kurt he has the blessing of the Committee, CAF and FIFA.

In a dramatic poll, Kurt Okraku twice won arguably the most closely contested GFA election in recent memory but narrowly failed to garner the 50% + 1 (fifty per cent plus one) vote required for an outright win.

Per the regulations that governed the polls, an individual could only become GFA President after obtaining in excess of 50% of the valid votes cast at congress.

Of the 118 delegates, he had polled 44 votes in the first round of voting, with George Afriyie, his closest challenger, closely behind with 40 votes. That neccessitatead a second round of voting, and here again, he managed 59 votes or 50%.

George Afriyie however conceded defeat just when it was announced a third round of voting was set to kick off, leaving congress with no choice but a thrid round with only Okraku as the candidate.
