The CSD, one step away from postponing elections in the Federation

first_imgCasillas’ candidacy wants to wait first to see how events unfold and how the Higher Sports Council reacts. Several experts consulted in the electoral processes in sport, mostly jurists, assure that this hypothetical request for the postponement would have all the options to prosper since it would be the most logical scenario and that, even, it would not have to be only a step to take in soccer, but in all the federations of territorial or national scope. In fact, yesterday the Andalusian Basketball Federation made public the cancellation of their elections until the social panorama improves. A decision that Irene Lozano is one step away from making with the RFEF before the advance of the coronavirus and the state of alarm decreed by the Prime Minister, Pedro Sánchez.It would only be in the event that the CSD did not pronounce itself, when Casillas would ask for an audience to put this issue on the table once again, in the previous meetings with Irene Lozano, his requests for electoral delay were not met. By then, Casillas would already know if the Euro Cup and even the Olympic Games and various World Cups of various specialties, which were so tight on the deadlines, could have already been officially suspended. That and the fact that even the regional elections in Galicia and the Basque Country, for example, are on the wire and at this time it is debated when to hold them, it would make his wish that the duel with Rubiales scheduled for June be delayed a few more months not at all unreasonable. “You have to talk to a lot of people, there are 23,000 people who have to choose the 139 members of the Assembly who will vote for the president, and you have to travel Spain from end to end to speak to all levels with some trips and through some meetings that it will not be possible to do in a long time … “, assures one of Casillas’ partners in this battle that, although it is not yet known that copper is being fought in his name, he will soon announce it. Luis Rubiales was asked last Thursday in Las Rozas by the media about the presidential elections that are to be held in June. Especially in case this coronavirus crisis could change the process deadlines. The President of the Federation, appealing to caution and responsibility, was blunt: “I have nothing planned. I am concerned about the problem of the coronavirus. At the administration level, it remains 100% and the elections are an administrative act. We are going to focus in the coronavirus. Depending on the scenario, we’ll see what happens. ” Nevertheless, That possibility of the elections being affected is gaining weight after the last two days, in which the national problem has increased and the state of alarm has had to be decreed with very strict rules for all the autonomous communities without exception.The environment of Casillas, which is not only reduced as at the beginning of his pre-candidacy to his representative, his promoters and his closest collaborators, but also extends to the territorial presidents, coaches and players who have already given him this month in private their informal vote of confidence, they recognize off the record what They are encouraging him to ask for a postponement of the electoral process when the time is right. That movement could arrive in a matter of days, predictably on March 25, which is when Luis Rubiales had planned to resign as president on a protocol basis to open the electoral process, and especially when the general mood tempers a little and lowers the current state of panic over the pandemic that is punishing Spain and Europe. Taking a step now may seem selfish and unsympathetic. CSD sources have assured Ace that “the only priority for Irene Lozano, Secretary of State for Sport, at this moment is health. How could it be otherwise, the alert state will prevail over all other things, including the elections to the Federation “.last_img read more

Employer recruits tweeting chicken

first_imgSomething for the weekend…What kind of benefits should an employer offer to poultry employees? This is a question that Employee Benefits never imagined it would be asking, but it is in fact one that Australian fast food chain Chicken Treat may have to consider.The firm has taken on a new member of staff, Betty the tweeting chicken. Betty will be in charge of Chicken Treat’s social media feed until she manages to tweet a five-letter word.This could be a tall task for the feathery recruit as most of her tweets are thus far unintelligible, for example: “QQ 0U8 BCUIJCN3WQBVHCXQQWRSqwxq xcghxg q #chickentweet.”However, if she succeeds, she may gain entry into the Guinness Book of World Records, which is a pretty impressive form of reward and recognition for any employee. A video of the ‘training’ she has received to help her achieve this goal has also been released by the food chain.Not everyone is a fan of the PR stunt though, with some suggesting that hiring a chicken is in bad taste for a business that serves them up as food. Others, such as animal rights organisation Peta, have pointed to the poor conditions in which many chickens are bred and kept.Chicken Treat has responded by tweeting: ”We are happy to assure everyone that Betty is well looked after and is very happy at her home at Chicken Tweet HQ.”At Employee Benefits we are wondering what kind of motivational benefits would best suit poultry, or whether the chance to avoid ending up on a plate is enough to keep Betty from tweeting that elusive five-letter word…last_img read more
