A top Indian Olympic official said that the suspended Indian Olympic Association "is running out of time to clean up its administration before next year's major sporting events," according to the AP. The IOA "was suspended in December last year for conducting elections declared illegal" by the IOC. It has been given an Oct. 31 deadline by the IOC to amend its constitution and a Dec. 15 deadline "to hold fresh elections if it wants to return to the Olympic fold." IOC member Randhir Singh said, "The IOC executive board is clear that elections will be authorized only after the amendments asked for are complied with. If these deadlines are not met, it will mean a crucial loss of time close to big events like the Asian Games, Commonwealth Games and the Winter Olympics next year" (AP, 9/21).
