(MENAFN - Muscat Daily) The Oman Olympic Committee (OOC) has decided to postpone its first ever elections, originally scheduled to be held on October 31. A fresh date for the polls will be finalised at the OOC's general assembly in mid-November.The decision to delay the polls, which are likely to take place early next year, was taken on Saturday at the third meeting of the OOC's board that was held under the chairmanship of the OOC's acting chairman Habib Macki.As reported by Muscat Daily last week, the board has decided to delay its polls because the OOC first wants all the national sports bodies to wrap up their respective elections.Saturday's meeting was attended by the chairmen of the various sports bodies that come under the OOC's ambit._________________________________Asian Indoor-Martial Arts Games in Incheon
The OOC's board also decided that Oman will participate in the fourth Asian Indoor-Martial Arts Games, to be held Incheon, South Korea from June 29-July 6, 2013.
