HRH Pricess Haya Bint Al Hussein New FEI Presidents


The election of the 13th FEI President held on 1 May took place over two rounds. The total valid ballots cast consisted of 123 National Federations (102 present and 21 represented by a proxy), and 15 Bureau Members.

The results of the first round were as follows:

HRH Pincess Haya Bint Al Hussein of Jordan ? 68 votes
Freddy Serpieri ? 52
HRH Princess Benedikte of Denmark ? 16

Consequently, HRH Princess Benedikte was eliminated. As neither of the candidates had received a 2/3 majority as required by the FEI Statutes, the voting continued with a second round.

The results of the second round were as follows:

HRH Pincess Haya Bint Al Hussein of Jordan ? 82
Freddy Serpieri ? 52

A 2/3 majority was also required for the second round, which neither of the two candidates obtained (According to the number of valid ballots, the 2/3 majority consisted of 89 votes). However, Freddy Serpieri chose to withdraw and HRH Princess Haya was declared the winning candidate.
