Dhari Barjas

KUWAIT: The Basketball Association formed a five member committee to run the association during a meeting of its general assembly that was held yesterday at the Kuwait Olympic Committee premise.

The committee includes:
• Dhari Barjas, chairman of the board
• Sheikh Ali Al-Khalifa Al-Sabah, Deputy Chairman
• Haitham Baroun, secretary
• Salem Al-Marta, Treasurer
• Ahmad Al-Daihani, member

The Public Authority for sports dissolved the association a year ago after most of the board members resigned. Later, it formed a five member committee to run it and this prompted the general assembly to interfere and they in turn formed a temporary committee to run the association and call for elections during a period that does not exceed 90 days. The general assembly saw ten out of 12 clubs attending as Kuwait, Kazima, Nasr, Sulaibkhat, Sahel, Jahra, Yarmouk, Tadamon, Qurain, and Shabab were present while Al-Qadesya and Arabi were absent.
