KUALA LUMPUR, June 29 (Bernama) -- The Malaysian Blind Sports Association (MBSA) claimed that the interference of outside parties caused the Malaysian Paralympic Council's (MPC) Annual General Meeting (AGM) to be postponed today.
MBSA president Dr S. Radha Krishnan said he was quite surprised with the postponement announced by MPC deputy president John Ng, claiming that the decision would affect MPC's credibility and athletes' preparation for the 2019 Asean Para Games in the Philippines in January.
"We seemed not to have been given the opportunity by MPC to voice our views at today's meeting, and I am very disappointed with the way the meeting was conducted," he said when met by reporters after the AGM at the Paralympic Games Excellence Centre in Kampung Pandan here today.
Asked whether he will be contesting for the MPC deputy president post, Radha Krishnan said he would leave it to the 24 MPC affiliates to decide if they want to nominate him again.
Meanwhile, MPC secretary-general Siti Zaharah Abdul Khalid stressed that the governing body had to agree with the wishes of the affiliates to postpone the AGM.
"I cannot comment any further because our 24 affiliates have decided to postpone this AGM, and we have to respect the decision," she told reporters.
