BJA (British Judo Association) Director Elections 2022
Result summary published!
BJA 9 July 2022:
England Home Country Representative
An unusual high turn out, over 33% according to the BJA, despite the flaw with the election process.
With the BJA not making the flaw known to those entitled to vote on their website nor on their social media platforms!
It is highly unusual in any democratic election process only to announce the winners without any other details whatsoever!
If you want to know how many clubs were entitled to vote, how many voted, how many votes each candidate received?
You will need to contact the BJA or UK Engage!

These payments approved by?
BJA Directors & “BJA Leaders”!
To date, it has not been possible to ascertain how Ronnie Saez has been approved by the nomination committee despite his previous handling of public funding!
