THE Malaysian Hockey Confederation (MHC) held their ExtraOrdinary General Meeting (EGM) in Johor Baru yesterday and president Tengku Abdullah Sultan Ahmad Shah stood his ground of not seeking re-election, and stopped short of naming a replacement.
After amendments to the MHC constitution were agreed to, Tengku Abdullah said: "I will not seek re-election, and was supposed to name my candidate for the post today, but will hold my tongue."
This is because the projected elections in November might have to be held next year, as the amendments to constitution needs to be endorsed by the sports commissioner's office.
"Hopefully the amendments are endorsed before November, so I can name my candidate early," said Tengku Abdullah.
Selangor HA president Datuk Seri Subahan Kamal is highly tipped to take over the hot MHC seat in November or January.
On another note, Tengku Abdullah said he prefers coach Arul Selvaraj to remain with the juniors, and a foreign coach to take charge of the seniors.
"I prefer Arul to take charge the juniors as we look for a foreign coach for the seniors. Meanwhile, he (Arul) can coach both the teams," said Tengku Abdullah.
