Asian Hockey Federation mulls limiting president tenure


The Asian Hockey Federation (AHF) is set to go through a ‘constitutional’ makeover. The regional hockey body will consider limiting the tenure of the AHF president to three terms. The same is expected to be discussed at Asian Hockey Federation’s annual general meeting (AGM) in Kuala Lumpur on August 31.
It may be noted that Asian Hockey Federation secretary general Tan Sri P. Alagendra, who is currently serving as its acting president following the sad demise of Sultan Azlan Shah last month, is likely to move forward towards reviewing the constitution at its upcoming AGM.
The AHF president’s term is for four years. It may be mentioned here that late Sultan Azlan Shah was AHF president since 1994.
