Penang State Hockey Association President Dato Ow Soon Kooi has quit.

He submitted his resignation last Monday and the state HA will convene a meeting this Sunday to decide their next course of action, after accepting the resignation.

It is learnt that Ow quit as he could not give his full focus and his election as MHC Vice President was also a factor.

It must be noted that Ow has done the right thing by vacating his state post so there is no conflict nor convergence of interest with holding two positions.

This resignation should be emulated by others that cling on to state positions and this Los not good as they will always have conflict of interest.

It will be interesting to see if others share these strong principles of Dato Ow.
