Guyana Cricket Board (GCB) president Drubahadur says it could take his administration at least another week before it decides who it will support at the upcoming West Indies Cricket Board (WICB) presidential election.
Drubahadur, whose board is considered to be in favour of incumbent Dr Julian Hunte, made the declaration on Saturday, a day after his executive met with presidential hopeful, Jamaican Whycliffe 'Dave' Cameron.
"Prior to Cameron indicating that he wanted to make a presentation, our plans were to make a decision on who we plan to vote for on Friday," said Drubahadur.
"However, after listening to Cameron a number of proposals were made that could benefit West Indies cricket, and as such we have taken a decision to delay our decision for at least another week," he added.
According to Drubahadur some of these proposals stem from Cameron's manifesto, which was launched two weeks ago.
"His manifesto has some good suggestions as to how West Indies cricket can improve, and outlines why he thinks he is best man for the job," the GCB boss said.
"He spoke about the WICB being more accountable to its stakeholders, being more transparent, and managing its resources more effectively. These are all good ideas, but we also know what Dr Hunte is capable of doing, and as as such will have to sit down some more before we come up with our final decision," Drubahadur added.
The GCB, prior to Cameron making his intentions known, had written to the WICB indicating that they would like the status quo of Hunte as president and Cameron (vice president) to remain.
The Barbados Cricket Association and the Leeward Islands Cricket Association have thrown their support behind Hunte, while the Jamaica Cricket Association and the Windward Islands Cricket Board are supporting Cameron.
The Trinidad and Tobago Cricket Board is yet to declare who it will be backing. The election will be held next Wednesday in Barbados.
