Princess Haya Not Seeking Third FEI Term
FEI President, Princess Haya of Jordan, has announced that she will not be seeking a third term as president of the International Equestrian Federation (FEI).
Princess Haya’s term ends in November 2014, she was elected in 2006. Currently, the FEI Presidents can only run for two terms, each term lasting four years. A few months ago, the FEI body announced that they would request to extend the presidency for an extra four-year term.
In her statement, Princess Haya said, “Whilst I very much appreciate and am honoured by efforts of the FEI regional group chairpersons and the national federations to amend the FEI statutes to permit me, or any FEI president to seek a third term, my views on the benefits of a two-term limit have not changed since the day I was elected.”
She went on saying, “I intend to leave the FEI in November 2014 knowing that our international federation is fit for the future,” she said. “I will work as hard as ever towards that goal until my final day in office. And then I will step aside, confident that I have done the right thing.”Filed under Jordan, United Arab Emirates
