I am still the Regional 2nd Vice Chairman. I have not moved or abandoned my position.
The decision to Act as 1st Vice is a Constitutional one Pending the determination of the status of the 1st Vice at the Disciplinary Committee.
I pray this issue is resolved amicably for us to have the unity that we deserve as a region.
