Incumbent Tengku Abdul Majid Sultan Iskandar has suffered the ignominy of being defeated by Malacca's Nur Azmi Ahmad in the tussle for the Malaysian Hockey Federation (MHF) deputy presidency. Nur Azmi garnered 26 votes as opposed to 14 for Tengku Majid.
Next, Tengku Majid will probably be focusing his energy on being the president of the Malaysian Golf Association (MGA). His brother-in-law Tengku Abdullah Sultan Ahmad Shah has the unenviable task of giving MHF a new breath of fresh air.
The MHF line-up 2008-2010:
President: Tengku Abdullah Sultan Ahmad Shah
Deputy president: Nur Azmi Ahmad
Vice-presidents: Datuk Seri Che Khalib Mohd Noh (28 votes), Datuk Rahim Arif (29), M. Gobinathan (25), Datuk Dr S.S Cheema (19)
Secretary: Hashim Mohd Yusof
Treasurer: S. Sanjilatheeban (29)
