Salazar Resigns as Deputy President

The Badminton World Federation has accepted the resignation of its Deputy President Gustavo Salazar Delgado due to personal reasons, unrelated to BWF business.

BWF President Poul-Erik Høyer has thanked Salazar for his many years of service on Council and his significant commitment and contribution to badminton.

As a result, the BWF now has a casual vacancy for the position of Deputy President and, as per clause 18.15 of the BWF Constitution, a person acting in that role shall be appointed by Council from within Council and a successor shall be elected for the remainder of the original term at the next AGMtaking into account the notice periods required under clause 15.1 for the calling of nominations.

Therefore, the earliest that an election can be held for the Deputy President post is at next year’s BWF Annual General Meeting.
