Johnson Fernandez has withdrawn his candicacy for the secretary's post in the upcoming Malaysian Hockey Federation (MHF) elections.
In his text message to those concerned, the Malay Mail copy editor said he has informed KLHA of his decision.
"Some of us were meant to write sports, some to manage sports. I guess my calling is the former," said Johnson, who served as the sports editor of the Malay Mail (old version) from 1999 to 2003. This could pave the way for Sgt Hashim Mohd Yusoff to retain his post.
