A case against CWI ‘executive presidency’


Share post:

BASSETERRE – Cricket West Indies presidential candidate, Ricky Skerritt says a plan by incumbent Dave Cameron to transform the position into an executive presidency would be a betrayal of long-held West Indies cricket values.

Describing the plan as “troubling”, the former Cabinet minister here said it would result in an “autocratic leadership structure”, which would diminish the importance of CWI’s paid executives.

“After six years as president, Dave Cameron’s intention to implement sweeping changes to the democratic process of decision-making within West Indies Cricket is troubling,” Skerritt said.

“His desire to lead CWI as a full-time executive, is not reflective of the West Indies cricket ethos. By advancing his plans for an autocratic leadership structure, which marginalises the role of commercially recruited executives, the incumbent has placed his personal thinking diametrically opposed to the values of West Indies cricket.” (CMC/HG)
