Iason resigns as President of PVFL

In a meeting Tuesday 9 August, the executive of the Port Vila Football League was served with a letter containing the resignation of Mr. George Iapson as President.

Iapson was elected President in 2003 at a time when PVFL was struggling to stay on its two feet as a result of contreversies within Vanuatu Football. Iapson managed to get the ball rolling again in the capital league, and was even voted in to the executive of the Vanuatu Football Federation as Treasurer in the same year.
The Province of Origin Tournament inaugurated three months ago is considered a major face lift for Vanuatu Football even though the participation is intended for Port Vila based players only.

Sources within PVFL say the Tuesday meeting was to consider some changes that could have seen Iapson replaced by another member as President. Iapson told the media that he had to resign because members of his executive were no longer cooperating with him.

Meanwhile his home club, Westtan Verts, has described Iapson's decision as appropriate. A senior member of the club says the club feels he has done enough.
Following Mr. Iapson's resignation, the Tuesday meeting elected his Vice, Walter Tokon as Acting President of PVFL. Tokon assures that championship matches will continue according to schedules. He says the executive is yet to consider and make a decision on Mr. Iapson's resignation.
