The Malaysian Gymnastics Federation's Annual General Meeting, held early this year, has been declared null and void by the Sports Commissioner's office.
The Sports Commisioner's office made that decision because representatives from Kedah Gymnastics Association, which has been de-registered, attended and participated in the AGM, where elections of office bearers was held.
Sports Commissioner, Datuk Nik Mahmud Nik Yusof confirmed that the AGM has been declared null and void and his office is waiting for the MGF Council to decide on the date for an Extra Ordinary General Meeting to held.
The AGM saw only one change taking place in the Treasurers post. The others, including President, Datuk Dr. Zakaria Ahmad, and Secretary, M. Shanmuganathan re-elected.
The Pahang Gymnastics Association has been given a show cause letter by the Sports Commisioners office for not submitting the reports for the past couple of years. This could be another problem for MGF.
But, all these things are a good indication that there has to be a change in the people running the day to day affairs of MGF. Enough of all these un professional attitudes which can cause an AGM to be declared null and void. If only the people cocerned has checked with the SC office before having the AGM, this could have been avoided.
Datuk Zak, please change the people running the association. Don't wait anymore.
