Norza almost certain to be BAM's new boss
Published on: Friday, April 21, 2017

Putra Jaya: Datuk Seri Mohamad Norza Zakaria will almost certainly be appointed as the new Badminton Association of Malaysia (BAM) president after the BAM Council members unanimously supported that he should not be challenged at BAM's annual general meeting on April 29.

Youth and Sports Minister Khairy Jamaluddin said the BAM Council members who held a closed-door meeting with BAM Patron Datin Seri Rosmah Mansor on Thursday, agreed that acting BAM president, Tan Sri Mohamed Al-Amin Abdul Majid should give way to Mohamad Norza, who is also BAM deputy president, to occupy the highest post in BAM.

Khairy explained that he also thanked Rosmah who gave the best advice in solving the issue of selection to the highest post in the association.

"This is an example to other (national) sport associations, whereby the question of selection can be solved in the family spirit and by taking into account the views and contributions of all parties," he told a media conference after attending the closed-door meeting at Sri Perdana, here.

In this regard, Khairy said he believed that the consensus in the selection of the BAM president could indirectly help the national squad return to its best form other than the confidence in Norza"s ability to take BAM to a new level.

In the meantime, Khairy hoped BAM's affiliates would fully support the motion that Mohamed Al-Amin be appointed as BAM adviser at the parent body's annual general meeting. – Bernama
