Giovanni Costantino The  Elective General Meeting of the Italian DanceSport Federation FIDS produced a surprise in as far that a proper election was not even required.

In his acceptance speech, President Costantino thanked the delegates and made the following pledge.

"I promise to implement the electoral programme which I have submitted to you. From the first 100 days of my term you should start seeing change that has as its first priority to combat the illicit practices in DanceSport."

President Lukas Hinder congratulated President Costantino on Sunday 23 October, pointing out that the fight against competition manipulation is the overriding objective of his presidential mandate at WDSF too.
