Venezuela In Danger

FUTBOL / FIFA suspenderá a Venezuela si no hace elecciones antes del 19
La vinotinto está en peligro

Los partidos pemundialistas ante Colombia y Bolivia corren el riesgo de no efectuarse


KELVY PIRELA

EL UNIVERSAL

La selección nacional de fútbol corre el riesgo de perder el camino andado en la Eliminatoria a Alemania 2006, lo mismo que el Deportivo Táchira y el Caracas FC en la Copa Libertadores de América, debido a que el comité Ejecutivo de la Federación Internacional de Fútbol Asociado, FIFA, anunció que suspenderá "de toda actividad internacional" a la Federación Venezolana de Fútbol (FVF).
La medida tendría efecto inmediato, "en caso de que no se celebren antes del 19 de marzo de 2005, las elecciones que estaban previstas para el día 12 y que fueron suspendidas por una decisión del Tribunal Supremo de Justicia.

Esta decisión se produjo luego de que una de las planchas se vio impedida de participar por no contar con el número de respaldos establecidos en los estatutos de la federación.

La FIFA reaccionó de forma estricta porque en sus normas se establece que se prohibe acudir ante tribunales ordinarios para la resolución de conflictos. Asimismo, sus miembros _entre ellos Venezuela_ están obligados a hacer que sus propios miembros respeten los Estatutos, reglamentos, disposiciones y decisiones del organismo. Venezuela violó los artículos 61.2 y 13.1.


Amparos y desamparos

La semana pasada la organización Fútbol Popular, aspirante a presidir la FVF introdujo un recurso de amparo en el Tribunal Supremo de Justicia alegando que se le violaba su derecho constitucional a participar en las elecciones. El documento condena el reglamento electoral que exige un mínimo de once postulaciones para hacer efectiva la inscripción, cuota imposible de cubrir debido a que Rafael Esquivel, presidente del ente, inscribió su candidatura con 24 de 34 postulaciones posibles.

El amparo fue admitido y las elecciones suspendidas por orden de la Sala Electoral del TSJ. Una vez enteradas las partes involucradas (solicitante, agraviantes y Ministerio Público), tendrá lugar una audiencia oral, la cual se realizará 96 horas a partir de la última notificación. Esto será, según estiman los solicitantes del recurso, el viernes.

En dicha audiencia se decidiría inmediatamente o, se diferiría sólo por 48 horas, en caso de que sea necesaria la presentación de pruebas.


Adiós Alemania

Mientras el casao se resuelve, los partidos ante Colombia y Bolivia, correspondientes a la Eliminatoria a Alemania 2006 y que están previstos para disputarse a fin de mes, peligran. Lo mismo que la continuación de la selección nacional en dicho concurso.

Igualmente, los clubes criollos que participan en la Copa Libertadores serían marginados de la competencia.


FIFA threatened Venezuela with suspension in all international events if the Venezuelan Football Federation Elections doesn't take place on March 19 or before.
The decision was made after a decision of the Venezuelan Supreme Court of Justice suspended the elections, which were originally planned for March 12, due to internal conflicts between aspirants to the presidency of the organ.
The Court decision states that, for the elections to take place, an oral auditory should take place first, in which the quarrelling parts will participate. It will most probably take place on March 11.
With this FIFA decision, Venezuela could be automatically disqualified from the World Cup qualifiers, Copa América, Suramericano U17, etc., and Deportivo Táchira and Caracas FC could be disqualified from the Copa Libertadores. The WCQ games against Colombia and Bolivia may therefore not take place.

I don't think this will happen, though.

Venezuela's Supreme Court orders local soccer federation to hold elections

March 11, 2005

CARACAS, Venezuela (AP) --

Venezuela's Supreme Court ordered the country's soccer federation on Friday to hold elections within a week to avoid suspension by FIFA.

Venezuelan Football Federation president Rafael Esquivel is expected to be re-elected, but federation member Jesus Berardinelli questioned the validity of the voting process, prompting Venezuelan soccer authorities to postpone the election.

Justice Fernando Vega Torrealba said the federation must elect its president on March 17 to avoid the possible sanction, which threatens two World Cup qualifiers at the end of the month.

They do crap once in a while.

What worries me is that politics are mixed in this conflict. Venezuela is a country that has been divided enough by politicians and now they can destroy one of the few things that unite us and that identifies us all. What saddens me more is to see how self destructive we are. This happens just when our selección is on the rise and has actual posibilities to qualify to a WC. This would never have happened before this good moment. The reason is simple: Everyone wants a piece of the cake. Every one wants some piece of the credit. Football authorities never fought for the control of the team when it was always on the bottom. Now everyone wants to put its hands on it and they can throw away all of our progress in the sport, mixing our tensions in one of the few things that served as an escape to them.

Furthermore, if you ask me which of the three elements I regard with respect (the Federation, Fútbol Popular or the Supreme Court), I can honestly tell you that none of them, because none of them are saints. Not even FIFA is.

Regardless of every part's arguments, this is not the time to be inflexible. The Venezuelan people's memory will judge them if the worse happens and they will not be dearly remembered, that's for sure. Please show some sense here! Don't do this to our football now! If something like this happens to our baseball, I am sure baseball will survive here, but our football is currently not in the position to recieve deadly blows.

Please show some love for our nation!

Venezuela court clears way to avoid possible FIFA ban

By Guillermo Cardenas

CARACAS, Venezuela, March 11 (Reuters)

- Venezuela's Supreme Court ordered the domestic soccer federation on Friday to hold postponed leadership elections on March 17, clearing the way for the country to avoid a possible international ban.

World soccer's governing body FIFA had threatened to suspend the nation unless the Venezuelan Football Federation held the elections for a new president and executive by March 19.

An internal federation dispute, which was taken to the Supreme Court, had twice caused the postponement of the elections.

The threatened FIFA ban would have ended Venezuela's hopes of reaching the 2006 World Cup finals.

Although Venezuela are ninth in the 10-nation World Cup qualifying competition, the team that has been for years the Cinderella of South American soccer has produced several sparkling performances recently.

PUBLIC APPEALS

Leading figures in Venezuelan soccer, including popular national team coach Richard Paez, have appealed to the Supreme Court and to the federation to solve the dispute and thereby avoid the FIFA ban.

Venezuela have won four of their 11 South American World Cup qualifying matches and still have a chance of reaching the 2006 finals in Germany. The next game in the tournament is against Colombia on March 26.

In a warning to Venezuela this week, FIFA cited its statutes forbidding member federations appealing to the courts.

But magistrate Fernando Vega, vice president of the Venezuelan Supreme Court's electoral chamber, said the FIFA statutes were not binding on Venezuela's top tribunal.

"We have to uphold the constitutional norms of the nation," he said.

Venezuelan Football Federation president Rafael Esquivel is standing for re-election after more than a decade as leader.

Representatives of an opposition candidate had, however, frozen the election process by filing an appeal to the Supreme Court calling for a change in the way the poll was organised.

Venezuelan soccer federation resolves internal conflict

March 15, 2005

CARACAS, Venezuela (AP) -- The Venezuelan Football Federation has resolved an internal conflict that caused FIFA to threaten to suspend the country from international play.

Alejandro Sanchez Martorelli, who filed a legal complaint before the Supreme Court to increase the voting members of the federation in an effort to win the federation's presidency, dropped his candidacy, federation president Rafael Esquivel said Thursday.

The federation could still be sanctioned for taking the matter to a national court, a violation of FIFA regulations. The Supreme Court established a deadline for the federation's elections earlier this month, but may decide to strike that mandate in an attempt to appease FIFA.

At stake is Venezuela's matches in the World Cup qualifiers against Colombia on March 26 and against Bolivia on March 29.

Ok, to put it in few words and in the least biased way possible, this is what is going on:

Elections had to be held in the Venezuelan Football Federation in March 5th. They were postponed because a group that wanted to postulated a candidate that was going to compete against the actual president (of the federation) didn't gather the necesary number of postulations to run in the elections, so basically Esquivel (the president) is the only candidate for the presidency (there are other positions that are also being elected, though). The other guy, Bernardelli, introduced a demand in the Venezuelan Supreme Court stating that his constitutional electoral wrights were being vulnerated. Since this man and his group are supporters of Chávez, the Supreme court (which is controlled by the government) declared the electoral rules of the Federation inconstitutional and ordered the elections to be postponed, while they made a definitive decision. FIFA statutes prohibit intervention of any kind of the governments in the activities of the federations, let alone making them go against the rules and procedures indicated by FIFA (since FIFA is a supranational organization), so they inmediately ordered the elections to be held in or before March 19, threatening with desafiliation if they didn't take place. A hearing took place in the Venezuelan Supreme Court on March 11, and they ordered the Federation to hold elections on the 17, but decided that Bernardelli should be accepted as candidate, thus contradicting FIFA statutes anyway. If those elections take place in violation of the FIFA rules, the Venezuelan Football Federation will be almost certainly desafiliated from FIFA, thus being automatically disqualified from the WCQ, and its clubs from Copa América, without mentioning that Copa América 2007 will almost certainly not take place in Venezuela.

What happens is that Esquivel and the present day authorities are identified with a political party that used to be linked to the government, but now, due to divisions between the government coalition, they are being kicked out of the government. In few words, they belong to a group thar has fallen out of grace, victims of purges within the "chavismo", and now they are oposittion. More radical movements, close to Chávez, now want to take over the Federation. They are represented in football by this group called "Fútbol Popular", but, since they don't have enough backup in the Federation to even postulate a candidacy, they are doing like they do in every other aspect in the nation: using their political power to gain control of it. To do that, they are making the Venezuelan state to interfere with the rules of the Federation. We live in an increasingly authoritarian state, so things like this are prone to happen.

Is the Venezuelan government actually capable of letting this desafiliation happen, to shatter this World Cup dream that is alive inside the heart every Venezuelan? Hell yes they are! Believe it or not, they don't care. Chávez, particularlly, is very nationalistic and has an allergy to everything that sounds slightly contrary to national sovereignity, even though he likes to intervene in the politics of other countries (Bolivia, for example). So if we are desafiliated from FIFA, I won't be surprised if he takes control of the federation and creates a paralell international federation. We may end up playing games against Cuba and Cháves himself being a player, coach and captain of the team, like it ACTUALLY HAPPENS in baseball.

Is there any way to avoid this? We're about to find out.

This is a symptom of a transition from a democracy to a totalitarian state, where the government has control of all the powers and, thus over everyday more and more things in the social life of the country. I'm not exaggerating. They are even discussing a law project which would give the state shared custody of the CHILDREN, along with the parents. So how can they care if Venezuela is forfeighted out of the World Cup? To tell you the truth, that's actually the least serious of our problems.

So that is happening.

May God jelp us.

Sánchez Martorelli se retiró tras una reunión efectuada en el Ministerio de Educación. El TSJ anuló sentencia de la Sala Electoral y garantizó continuidad de la Vinotinto en la eliminatoria


KELVY PIRELA

EL UNIVERSAL

Fin de la historia. Ya se puede cambiar el canal, dejar los tintes políticos y vivir el fútbol en el estricto sentido deportivo. Fútbol Popular decidió retirarse de la contienda electoral por la presidencia de la Federación de Fútbol y, a juzgar por reacciones de Rafael Esquivel, la dimisión le garantizó a Venezuela la permanencia en la Eliminatoria a Alemania 2006 y en el resto del concierto internacional.
Tras una reunión celebrada en el Ministerio de Educación y Deportes entre el titular del despacho, Aristóbulo Istúriz; el presidente de la Federación, Rafael Esquivel; el candidato de Fútbol Popular, Alejandro Sánchez Martorelli; la diputada de la Asamblea Nacional, Victoria Mata; el director del IND, Eduardo Alvarez y el seleccionador nacional, Richard Páez, Sánchez Martorelli anunció que su grupo retiraba su candidatura, acción que no definió como una renuncia, "sino un paso importante en favor del fútbol nacional, de la Vinotinto y de toda la gente que trabaja por el fútbol en el país".

El presidente de Trujillanos, impedido de inscribirse en el proceso interno con los reglamentos internos de la FVF y que junto a Jesús Berardinelli acudió al Tribunal Supremo de Justicia y provocó una advertencia de suspensión de FIFA, dijo que el grupo que encabeza decidió "no renunciar al fútbol, sino más bien apartarnos de cualquier aspiración electoral y mantenernos, por ahora, en otra plataforma de lucha, expresando nuestras ideas, nuestras propuestas y proyectos".

Rafael Esquivel acogió con respeto la posición de Fútbol Popular y dijo que "comenzamos a ganarle 1-0 a Colombia. Demostramos que Venezuela está por encima de los hombres que hacemos vida como dirigentes".

El fallo de la Sala Constitucional del Tribunal Supremo de Justicia _respecto a un recurso de revisión relacionado con la sentencia de la Sala Electoral que ordenó la reapertura del proceso de inscripciones y marcó los plazos_, solucionó definitivamente el conflicto entre las partes, y aunque aún hay que esperar por un nuevo comunicado de FIFA para verificar el estatus en el que queda Venezuela, Esquivel refirió que era "fundamental haber logrado la tranquilidad absoluta que nos permita transmitirle a FIFA, con seguridad, que estamos en el camino correcto y que no vamos a permitir que el fútbol salga mal parado. Nos vamos satisfechos".

El presidente de la Federación anunció que, para garantizar la participación de la Vinotinto en los partidos contra Colombia y Bolivia (26 y 29 de este mes), aún tenía un as bajo la manga.

"Nos quedaba el recurso de solicitar la prórroga de nuestra gestión a la FIFA, previa aprobación del IND, para salvar el Suramericano Sub 17, la eliminatoria y la participación de nuestros equipos en la Copa Libertadores".


So the story had a happy ending. "Fútbol Popular" retired their candidacy, while the Venezuelan Supreme Court anulled their decision to order the elections for the 17th, which ordered the participation of the group that opposed the President of the Federation. This decision was made citing "reasons that were beyond the interests of the parts in conflict". The elections will take place on Friday 18 or Saturday 19, within the lapse that FIFA gave. We will continue in the qualifiers.

So this ends the conflict.

Thank you, God.

See all of you on the 26, when we play against Colombia.

Venezuela hard pressed to pick squad for qualifiers

CARACAS, March 16 (Reuters) -

Venezuela, under threat of a FIFA suspension over a conflict in the local football federation elections, will be without three leading players for their World Cup qualifier at home to Colombia in Maracaibo on March 26.

Coach Richard Paez had to deal with the loss of winger Jose Vallenilla and midfielder Jorge Rojas due to injuries and will also be without suspended sweeper and captain Luis Vera.

Paez, who named a 20-man squad, has two candidates for the right-wing slot, Hector Gonzalez, who plays in Ecuador, and Fernando De Ornelas, who is with Odd Grenland in Norway.

Vera will be replaced by his Caracas FC team mate Leonel Vielma and Rojas by Ricardo David Paez, the coach's son, who plays for Deportivo Pereira in neighbouring Colombia.

Venezuela are one from bottom in the South American qualifying group for the 2006 World Cup in Germany. South America gets four places in the World Cup and plays off for a fifth with Oceania.

The team - dubbed the "Red Wine" team for the colour of their strip - have 13 points, level with Colombia, Peru and Chile who all have a better goal difference.

Squad:

Goalkeepers: Rafael Dudamel (Deportivo Tachira), Gilberto Angelucci (UA Maracaibo)

Defenders: Jose Manuel Rey (Pontevedra), Alejandro Cichero (Litex Lovech), Juan Fuenmayor (UA Maracaibo), Jonay Hernandez (Cordoba), Jobanny Rivero (Caracas FC), Hector Gonzalez (Deportivo Cuenca), Fernando de Ornelas (Odd Grenland)

Midfielders: Leopoldo Jimenez (Cordoba), Miguel Mea Vitali (Sora), Andre Gonzalez (UA Maracaibo), Gabriel Urdaneta (Young Boys), Juan Arango (Real Mallorca), Ricardo Paez (Deportivo Pereira), Leonel Vielma (Caracas FC)

Forwards: Rafael Castellin (Caracas FC), Maximo Margiotta (Vicenza), Giancarlo Maldonado (UA Maracaibo), Ruberth Moran (Argentinos Juniors).

For the following qualifier against Bolivia in La Paz on March 29, Paez will add: Luis Vera (Caracas FC), Pedro Fernandez (UA Maracaibo), Alexander Rondon (Deportivo Tachira) and Daniel Noriega (Caracas FC).
