The Supreme Court has reportedly offered four more weeks to the Archery Association of India (AAI) for conducting fresh elections after the petitioner came with a request for a modification in judgment. Earlier reports had emerged of the association being divided into two camps ahead of elections.

Amidst all the confusion surrounding the elections for the new president in the AAI, the court has given the members some more time to re-conduct elections freshly after the 2018 election results were declared null and void, reported TOI. 

The decision was taken after Rahul Mehra approached the court with a request for a modification in the judgment. The AAI would now be having a total of eight weeks from the date of judgment on May 1 to get the job done. 

As soon as the court had modified its judgment, AAI secretary general Maha Singh announced June 9 to be the as the new election date in Chandigarh, which was quickly objected by acting president Sunil Sharma, who had already previously called for elections on May 26, at the Indian Olympic Association's (IOA) headquarters.

"My election notice stands. The court has only granted more weeks to the AAI for elections, so nothing has changed," Sharma said, reported TOI.

Sharma also stated the election call by Maha Singh was arbitrary in nature as five members of the 10-member AAI's executive committee weren't even present for the meeting in Chandigarh on Friday.
