FASU Elective General Assembly in Addis Ababa re-elects Ralethe as its President



ADDIS ABABA - The General Assembly of FASU, held in Addis Ababa, the Capital of Ethiopia, was attended by 24 members out of the total membership of 26 countries. This was considered as a huge success for FASU and its EC. Only Egypt and Malawi were absent.

During the GA, FASU President Malumbete Ralethe welcomed the delegates and guests, among them EUSA President Adam Roczek and Vice-President Leonz Eder and Laurent Briel, Director FISU for the Development and the NUSF relations. The two EUSA representatives presented gifts to both the FASU leadership and the President of the Ethiopian Public Universities Sports Association, thanking them for the invitation and hospitality. The Director of the Development presented the FISU plaque and underlined the great work done by the President of the EPUSA, Mr. Abbay Belayehun, to welcome all the delegations for this General Assembly.
