KUANTAN: The Malaysian Hockey Confederation’s (MHC) president can only remain in office up to three terms, with each term consisting of four years.
This is one of the major amendments being made to the organisation’s constitution.
The MHC executive council have also agreed that the number of members in the executive council be reduced from the present 52 to 21.
President Tengku Abdullah Sultan Ahmad Shah said these are among the radical changes planned for the MHC constitution. The amendments, which are currently being fine-tuned, are aimed at making the association more efficient.
“We want to have a lean team of members who will be more effective in carrying out their duties. The present team is too big and only a few really speak out.
“We have also agreed that the age limit for the president will be 70.
“We hope to call for an Emergency General Meeting (EGM) soon to endorse the amendments,” he said.
Tengku Abdullah said the changes would take effect once they are endorsed by the MHC and approved by the Sports Commissioners Office.
Tengku Abdullah’s first term in office will come to an end this year and when the AGM is held later this year he is likely to seek another term. But Tengku Abdullah said the decision to stay on will depend on a few factors and also the support he gets from the affiliates.
“The constitution changes are not about me but for the good of the MHC. It will affect anyone coming into office,” he said.
Under the constitution changes, the principal officer bearers to be elected are the president, deputy president and seven vice-presidents.
There will be two independent members and only 10 members from the 16 affiliates.
Currently, the president appoints the secretary, assistant secretary, treasurer and assistant treasurer; that remains unchanged.
Under the amendments, if an affiliate has a vice-president elected, they cannot seek to be a member through the affiliates quota.
