On board – Hunte clears air on WICB election
Incumbent West Indies Cricket Board (WICB) president Dr Julian Hunte is dismissing claims that he informed fellow directors that he would not be seeking re-election.
In an interview ahead of the WICB’s annual general meeting in Barbados on March 27, Hunte sought to set the record straight against the background of earlier reports that suggested he would not be going after a fourth successive term.
Hunte’s challenger for the post and his vice-president for the past six years, Dave Cameron, said his decision to contest the presidency was prompted by an approach from WICB shareholders after the current president told directors this would be his last term in office.
“I never ever informed the board that I was not going to seek re-election,” Hunte told the WEEKEND NATION.
