The Fédération Internationale de Volleyball has called on the Philippine Olympic Committee (POC) to hold an election for what would look like a new national sports association for volleyball.
POC president Abraham Tolentino said the election is needed to take place before the FIVB convenes for its general assembly.
With the FIVB general assembly set next month, the volleyball NSA needs to have its set of officers by the end of January.
The POC set the election later this month.
To date, there are two volleyball governing groups, who are still at odds.
The old Philippine Volleyball Federation (PVF) has been insisting that it is still being recognized by the FIVB despite the POC stripping them of their status as the official NSA for volleyball.
The one POC now recognizes, the Larong Volleyball sa Pilipinas Inc., is the one handling the national team duties.
However, POC said neither PVF nor LVPI is being recognized by FIVB right now.*PNA
