PUTRAJAYA: Badminton Association of Malaysia (BAM) acting president Tan Sri Al-Amin Abdul Majid will let his deputy Datuk Seri Norza Zakaria win the presidency uncontested.
Youth and Sports Minister Khairy Jamaluddin announced the decision after a BAM council meeting with association patron Datin Seri Rosmah Mansor at Seri Perdana Thursday evening.
The council also unanimously agreed that Al-Amin be appointed advisor at its annual general meeting on April 29.
