Jamel Atrous Presents Candidacy For Club Africain Presidency

Posted by admin on Thursday, 3 February 2011

The businessman was unjustly forced out at the beginning of the season but is now a candidate once more.
Jamel Atrous has officially presented himself as a candidate for Club Africain’s vacant president’s post according to Mosaique FM. The general assembly is set to take place on February 25th.

Atrous was appointed Club Africain president this summer but was surprisingly replaced after a member of Tunisia’s former President Zine Abdine Ben Ali’s family intervened and had Cherif Bellamine take his place. Bellamine has since stepped down due to health reasons, providing Atrous an opportunity to stand for election again in what has been one of Club Africain’s most tumultuous seasons to date.

Last month, Atrous gave an interview to Infosfoot.net during which he shed light on the bizarre ordeal that he lived through this summer and laid the blame at the feet of Belhassan Trabelsi, an influential businessman who was the brother of Ben Ali’s wife.
