The IOC has taken note of the results of the Elective General Assembly of the National Olympic Committee (NOC) of Panama, which took place on 16 December 2012, and congratulates Mr Camilo Amado on his election as the new NOC President, as well as all the NOC office-bearers who were elected on the same occasion.

This Elective General Assembly of the NOC of Panama is the culmination of a process initiated by the IOC in close cooperation with all the International Federations concerned and the Government authorities in order to clarify the composition of the NOC and to bring together the real and legitimate representatives of the Olympic Movement in Panama under the umbrella of the NOC in accordance with the Olympic Charter and the IOC President’s letter of 13 March 2012.

This NOC Elective General Assembly took place in a democratic and transparent manner, in the presence of almost all the legitimate representatives of the Olympic Sports Federations in Panama, as recognised by their respective International Federations; the IOC member in Panama; as well as two athlete representatives duly elected by the NOC General Assembly, one of them being Olympic champion Mr Irving Saladino. The election process was conducted by secret ballot, in the presence of IOC observers.

This is a historic milestone in the conflict situation which the Olympic Movement in Panama has faced for several years, and the IOC hopes that this successful Elective General Assembly of the NOC of Panama on 16 December 2012 will pave the way for a bright future for the athletes and for sport generally in Panama.

El COI toma nota de los resultados de la Asamblea General electiva del Comité Olímpico Nacional (CON) de Panamá, celebrada el 16 de diciembre de 2012, y felicita al Sr. D. Camilo Amado por su elección como nuevo presidente del CON, así como a todos los titulares de un cargo en el CON que fueron elegidos en la misma ocasión.

Esta Asamblea General electiva del CON de Panamá es la culminación de un proceso iniciado por el COI en estrecha colaboración con todas las federaciones internacionales afectadas y las autoridades gubernamentales, a fin de aclarar la composición del CON y de reunir a los representantes legítimos del Movimiento Olímpico en Panamá al amparo del CON, de acuerdo con la Carta Olímpica y la carta del presidente del COI del 13 de marzo de 2012.

Esta Asamblea General electiva se celebró de manera democrática y transparente, en presencia de la gran mayoria de los representantes legítimos de las federaciones deportivas olímpicas en Panamá (reconocidas por sus respectivas federaciones internacionales), el miembro del COI en Panamá, así como los dos representantes de los atletas debidamente elegidos por la Asamblea General del CON, uno de ellos el campeón olímpico Irving Saladino. Todas las elecciones se efectuaron por votación secreta y en presencia de observadores del COI.

El desarrollo de la Asamblea General unitaria del dia de ayer, se puede considerar  un hito histórico para la resolución del largo conflicto al que hacía frente el Movimiento Olímpico en Panamá desde hace varios años. El COI espera que esta exitosa Asamblea General electiva del CON de Panamá, celebrada el 16 de diciembre de 2012, sea una base sólida para que los atletas y el deporte en Panamá dispongan de un futuro brillante.
