Go calls for transparency

Athletics chief Go Teng Kok said aspirants for any elective post in the Philippine Olympic Committee  election on Nov. 30 should present their track records and reveal pending cases if there’s any before the general assembly.

“POC general assembly members should require transparency on those who want to run in any post at the POC executive board,” said Go, credited for helping current president Jose “Peping” Cojuangco win a second term as local Olympic chief in 2008.

Go, however, had a falling-out with Cojuangco and was declared persona non-grata by the POC. Still, the Patafa head commands a solid block in the general assembly of 42 voting national sports associations.

“Those who have a pending case in the ombudsman should be required [to be transparent] along with those who have multimillion unliquidated funds from the government,” said Go, calling on NSA leaders to discourage those implicated in those cases from running.
