That is good news for the sports journalist around the globe that 104 countries has taken part in the AIPS election and once again President Gianni Merlo is elected unopposed for the position of AIPS chief, Esat Yilmaer of Turkey, the First Vice-President of AIPS is also member of the new cabinet and more encouraging news for Pakistani Sports Journalists is that Amjad Aziz Malik is elected for the executive committee, really it is reward to the dedicated personality from Pakistan who with his colleagues has not only re-activated the PSWF after 12 years but had created history by holding first ever International Sports Journalists Congress and he deserves “Salute” by the countrymen.
Esat Yilmaer who in his recent visit of Pakistan has made lot of friends in sports circles of the country and we all wish success to President Gianni Merlo and his entire team and hope that one day we will be having good time in Pakistan with the AIPS Chief on any occasion for which Amjad Aziz Malik has to approach the worthy president Gianni Merlo to visit Pakistan in their next tenure.
