Gujarat Cricket Association vice-president Amit Shah on Sunday said elections to the Central Board of Cricket, Ahmedabad (CBCA) would be held on November 10.
The last date for withdrawal of nomination would be November 5 and results would be declared on the same day, Shah told reporters after an agenda meeting of CBCA's executive committee.
Asked if there was a move to have the entire body declared elected uncontested, he said it could be done but "we want the rival group led by (Narhari) Amin and Amin himself to take up the challenge of winning the CBCA polls and remove the alleged mismanagement".
He said the 50 non-voting members who were allowed to vote in the elections in Amin's time would be barred from doing so in the November 10 elections.
There will be 178 clubs and associations which will send their nominees to vote in the CBCA polls where elections to 19 seats will be held.
Meanwhile, executive committee member Maitreyee Vakharia has objected to the panel holding the agenda meeting to alter rules regarding individual members' voting rights, saying the committee has no power to amend rules.
Pointing out that only the general body (and not executive body) meeting could take policy decisions like amendment of rules and policy decisions by a three-fourth majority in the presence of two-thirds of its total members, she said that today's meeting was illegal and its agenda item number two be withdrawn.
"Even otherwise the term of the committee had expired in May and elections are due since then...no such policy decision can be taken," she said.
