India Looks To Mend Relationships, Return To Olympics With Government Guarantees
Published May 16, 2013
THE ROADMAP: The AP reported the IOC will issue a "roadmap" for India's return to the Olympic fold. The IOC said the Indian body should review its constitution and hold "free, fair, democratic and transparent elections" based on the Olympic Charter and without political interference. The IOC said, "The entire process will be closely monitored and supervised by the IOC, which will issue a roadmap for the suspended IOA and all its members to follow." Singh said that "he was hopeful the suspension would be lifted soon." Singh: "The road map has been decided to bring India back in the Olympic fold and more details are being worked out" (AP, 5/15). The HINDU reported the Indian government and the IOA "disclosed that they had reached a consensus" about amending the IOA Constitution to "incorporate the age and tenure clauses." The government "had further diluted its tenure clause while sticking to 70 years as the limit for holding an executive post" (THE HINDU, 5/15).
