Minister of Youth and Sports Khaled Abdel Aziz decided to reappoint Al-Ahly SC’s current board of directors, headed by club president Mahmoud Taher.
Abdel Aziz’s decision comes following a Supreme Administrative Court ruling to delay the dismissal of Al-Ahly’s board of directors, which came after the board appealed a previous ruling by the Administrative Court to dismiss club’s board of directors.
The Supreme Administrative Court delayed the decision to dismiss the board to 28 February. This led Abdel Aziz to promptly reappoint the same board without any changes, aiming to maintain stability in the club.
In the initial ruling, the Administrative Court said administrative irregularities occurred during the Al-Ahly club elections in 2014, which ushered in a new board headed by Taher.
