From IOF Congress Binder 2012
For the position of President – one person to be elected
Brian Porteous GBR For new election
Helge Søgaard DEN For new election*
* Also nominated for election to the position of Vice President.
It would be great to see both working in same boat. Before election for President of IOF take place, GA will discuss about future WOC proposals. Candidates have different vision of future WOC but more similarities about what IOF should do in other development matters. Brian's network in international sports bodies could be very important for development of WOC no matter which concept IOF will apply. If Brian will became the new president, Helge will be most likely new Vice President. But if Helge will became the new president, Brian with his knowledge can be a new Sport Director if such a position is free at that time and he would be interested for. For IOF and Orienteering would not be good to loose one of them just because both candidates can't became new President.
I am not making speculation about outcome but it is not very common and it is very rare that two candidates run for the president of the International sport body.
