Press Release: Top law firm confirms UCI followed procedures correctly




Following a query from legal advisors to British Cycling regarding the Malaysian national federation’s proposal to amend Article 51.1 of the UCI’s constitution and the nominations of UCI President Pat McQuaid, a legal opinion from the global law firm Baker & McKenzie has confirmed that the UCI followed its procedures correctly.

The opinion from the Geneva office of Baker & McKenzie confirmed that the nominations of Pat McQuaid by the national federations of Morocco and Thailand had both been properly submitted to the UCI before the deadline for submissions. 
In addition, Baker & McKenzie confirmed that the proposed change to Article 51.1 of the UCI Constitution proposed by the Malaysian National Federation and the Asian Cycling Confederation had been properly submitted, that the alleged retroactive elements in the transitional provision were valid under Swiss law - and that the proposal was correctly included on the agenda of the UCI Congress in September.

The full legal opinion from Baker & McKenzie has been sent to the UCI Management Committee.
