"The Executive Board heard a report that the IOA's General Assembly had approved most of the amendments to the IOA's constitution requested by the IOC, but one specific clause had not been adopted," said the IOC in a statement on Thursday.
"This clause, which deals specifically with the eligibility of members, is key to the good governance of the NOC and needs to be fully accepted before the suspended IOA can proceed with the elections. An official notification of the IOC's position will be sent to the IOA," it said.
The decision to suspend the IOA was taken by the IOC in its executive board meeting at its headquarters in Switzerland last year.
