Mauritius has been barred from voting at the International Gymnastics Federation’s (FIG) upcoming Presidential election.

It was confirmed in a special edition of the FIG Bulletin that the island, together with eight other nations, would be unable to participate “due to suspension or provisional affiliation as member of the FIG occurred in 2019, 2020 or 2021.”

Mauritius, together with the Democratic Republic of the Congo, Guam, Haiti, Lesotho, Rwanda, Seychelles, Sierra Leone and Togo will therefore be unable to vote or make proposals at next month’s FIG Congress, due to take place between November 5 and 7 in Turkish resort Antalya.

Mauritius and Seychelles have been listed as “suspended”, while the affiliation of Democratic Republic of the Congo, Guam, Haiti, Lesotho, Rwanda, Sierra Leone and Togo is set to be “definitively confirmed” by the Congress, according to the 310-page document.
