The World Archery has appointed an observer for the elections of the Archery Association of India (AAI), which are scheduled to be held in New Delhi on January 18, 2020. The move is set to be the first step towards lifting the suspension of the Indian Archery Federation.

The World Archery has appointed its Asia Region Vice-President, Kazi Rajib Uddin Ahmed Chapol as the observer for AAI polls after a discussion with the Indian Olympic Association President Narinder Batra.

The observer will be required to submit a report on his observations and based on the report the Executive Committee of the World Archery will consider ‘conditional lifting‘ of the suspension on the Indian Archery Federation.

AAI suspended

The World Archery had de-listed the Archery Association of India in July 2019 and suspended it in August 2019 for going against its guidelines by electing two parallel bodies.

Due to factionalism in AAI, two opposing archery factions were created led by two different Presidents- Union Minister Arjun Munda and BVP Rao. There was confusion over which of the two is the legitimate body.
