Talks on changes in the Philippine Olympic Committee constitution and bylaws will continue after the Nov. 27 elections.
POC president Abraham “Bambol” Tolentino said after the executive board convened in a virtual meeting over the weekend that no more amendments were discussed.
Discussions on the amendments was deferred during the meeting which instead focused on the creation of the election committee.
Members of the executive board are keen on using the current charter of the POC.
There were many proposals that have been discussed over the past months.
And the first to be approved is the age limit of 78 that will be imposed for leaders of national sports associations who are running for elective positions.
Another proposal that is being reviewed is that board members who are elected will be limited to just two straight terms.
After that, anyone running for a post can do so after a four-year Olympic cycle.
The alterations in the charter will take effect after the November polls.
The POC election committee is to be composed of Atty. Teodoro Kalaw IV as chairman, with former International Olympic Committee representative Frank Elizalde and the chairman of the House Committee on Youth and Sports Eric Martinez.
The filing of the certificate of candidacy will be from Oct. 1 to 30 with the campaign period set to start on Nov. 1.
