WTF Candidates

The World Taekwondo Federation’s 2013 Elections, which will be held in Puebla Mexico on July 14, 2013. Applications that are emailed should have been received on or before April 12 11:59pm (Korea time). Applications that were sent by post should have a clearly post marked on or before April 12. According to the specialized press in Korea, Times TKD, by the closing time for email applications, there have been submitted only two candidacies, from the current WTF President, Dr. Chungwon Choue and from Congressman Dr. Moon-Jong Hong. If this no other candidates come forward, we might have a big dispute between the Korean Endorsed candidate and the previous president, that was also, since 2004, pushed into the WTF Presidency, by the Korean Government, then ruled by a different political party.
