Madagascar Ahmad Ahmad Elected As New CAF President

Madagascar Football Association Chief Ahmad Ahmad has been elected as the Confederation of African Football President, ending Issa Hayatou’s 29-year reign.

Ahmad received 34 votes compared to Hayatou’s 20 at the 39th CAF General Assembly in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia.

The result means a change in leadership for the first time since Hayatou took charge in 1988.

Ahmad becomes only the seventh CAF president in the governing body’s 60-year history.

He will serve from 2017 to 2021.
