Guyana Cricket Board (GCB) president Dru Bahadur says his executive will be meeting in another week or two to discuss who it will support in the upcoming West Indies Cricket Board (WICB) presidential elections.
The GCB, who had originally backed the nomination of former West Indies captain Clive Lloyd, but saw their nominee fall by the wayside, will decide on whether or not to support incumbent president, Dr Julian Hunte, or current vice-president, Whycliffe 'Dave' Cameron.
"Our monthly executive meeting is on in another week or two and definitely on the agenda will be the discussion about the WICB presidency, Bahadur told The Gleaner.
"I do not want to pronounce anything in my personal capacity, but what I can say is that we will look at the situation carefully, and come up with who we think can best serve West Indies cricket at this point in time," he declared.
The GCB, who saw Lloyd miss out on running for the position due to the lack of a required second nomination, is one of two territorial boards who are yet to declare their preference heading into the March 27 polls.
The other is the Trinidad and Tobago Cricket Board, who, after declining a request from Lloyd, pointed out that they wanted to remain neutral.
The Leeward Islands Cricket Association (LICA), Barbados Cricket Association (BCA), and the Windward Islands Cricket Board of Control (WICBC) have already signalled their intention as to where there votes are likely to go.
The BCA and LICA nominated Hunte and former West Indies fast bowler Joel Garner for post of president and vice-president, respectively, while the JCA and WICBC did likewise for Cameron and Dominican businessman, Emmanuel Nanthan.
The elections will headline the WICB next annual general meeting, which is set for Barbados on March 27.
