New WAKO IF Acting President Roy Baker made a declaration about the recent decision of WAKO Vice Presidents on electing a new Acting President. In his declaration, Mr. Baker stated that main reason because Salim Kayıcı’s position as WAKO Acting President revoked was because Mr. Kayıcı is candidate for WAKO IF Presiency.

Full text of Roy Baker’s declaration is as in below:
Dear WAKO (IF) members,
At the recent convened Board meeting held in San Sebastian, Spain, the WAKO Board have agreed to issue the following statement.
Without prejudice of the other reasons indicated by the VP in the minutes of their meeting, WAKO would like to communicate to the Members through our website that one of the main reason for which Mr Salim Kayici was revoked as Acting President was because the VP put as a condition for his appointment that he would not run for the position of President during the next GA and violation of that condition was one of the violations of conditions by him.
