Tunku Imran Willing To Lose Post But...

KUALA LUMPUR, March 4 (Bernama) -- Olympic Council of Malaysia (OCM) President Tunku Tan Sri Imran Tuanku Ja'afar is willing to lose his post to any candidate but his successor must have adequate understanding of the organisation and well versed in Malaysian sports.

"Its a democratic process, I think any sports leader has the right to contest but if I were to lose, I hope to lose to someone who is more capable to take over the post.

"I feel what OCM needs right now is someone who understands how the organisation, sports system works, not just within the country but at the international level," he said after launching SportsExcel-NSC-MILO National Junior Circuit here today.

He was commenting on former Perlis Menteri Besar Datuk Seri Shahidan Kassim's intention to contest the post of OCM President in May.

During the OCM Annual General Meeting (AGM), all 12 posts are expected to be contested.

He added that in accordance with the OCM constitution, 34 national sports associations affiliated to OCM are eligible to nominate three delegates each to attend and vote during the AGM, bringing the number of voting delegates to 102.
