I don’t believe so because people were against the long break we’ve had people wanted us to continue immediately after we finished the regular season but we thought we should give the people (players) the chance to recharge and come back. The elections are basically for delegates mostly from other regions, those who are in Accra; I don’t think the clubs are directly involved apart from those who are actively running for positions in congress so I don’t think it will affect it (the playoffs) at all” he said.

Four teams have qualified to compete in the playoffs in the Men’s Division I and Women’s Divisions respectively.
