Sebastian Coe, Uğur Erdener and Nenad Lalovic are set to be re-elected to the Association of Summer Olympic International Federations (ASOIF) Council after the deadline for nominations passed ahead of the body’s General Assembly.

The three officials, the respective Presidents of World Athletics, World Archery and United World Wrestling, submitted their candidacies prior to the nomination deadline on May 24.

The ASOIF said no other candidatures had been received.

Erdener is set to serve his third term on the ASOIF Council having been first elected in back in 2014, with the Turkish official later becoming ASOIF vice-president.

Coe will secure a second term having joined the Council in 2017.

He was joined a year later by Lalovic, who was elected to the Council following the resignation of then International Boxing Association President Ching-Kuo Wu.

The Council is led by ASOIF President Francesco Ricci Bitti, who was re-elected for a third time last year.

World Triathlon President Marisol Casado, International Equestrian Federation President Ingmar De Vos and the International Gymnastics Federation President Morinari Watanabe complete the Council.

The re-election of the three Council members will be on the agenda at the ASOIF General Assembly, which will be held virtually next Tuesday (June 8).

The umbrella body said Tokyo 2020 will be high on the agenda at the virtual meeting, with qualification being overseen by International Federations (IFs) and the final countdown to the Olympic Games with less than two months to go until the scheduled July 23 Opening Ceremony.

Amendments to the ASOIF statutes, aimed at improving gender balance within the representation of IF delegates, will be proposed at the General Assembly.

The AOISF said esports will be another topic discussed amid a significant increase in interest and participation in virtual simulations of IF sports and disciplines.

The ASOIF Council meeting, held before the General Assembly, saw the body agree on the timeline of the fourth review of IF Governance, to be led by the organisation's Governance Task Force.

The governance review process will launch in November and findings are due to be published at ASOIF’s next General Assembly in 2022.
