The WTF presidential elections for the next term will take place in July during the 2013 World Taekwondo Championships, to be held in Puebla.
Initially everything indicated that Dr. Chungwon Choue, who has been in charge of this position for two periods, would not have any obstacles to his re-election, but according to information masTaekwondo.com was able to get during these days, an important member of the South Korean National Congress, would have full support of the National Government of this country to dispute the charge.
Also Soo-Nam Park has postulated, who has recently been elected president of the German Taekwondo Federation, who joined for WTF presidential elections despite the suggestions made from most part of Europe, who asked him not to postulate since all indicates that this Continental Union gives full support to Dr. Choue.
Undoubtedly there will be a rough climate on the upcoming months in terms of politics, because although everything seemed to side Choue‘s reelection, current circumstances show that the peace climate there was months ago will not be the same, when it was speculated that if Taekwondo remained within the Olympic course, Dr. Chungwon Choue would not have any opposition to renovate his position.
