Kathmandu, June 21
Pankaj Bikram Nembang has been elected the president of the All Nepal Football Association on Monday.
Nembang, who served as the senior vice-president of ANFA, won the election by beating former president Karma Tsering Sherpa by six votes.
Pankaj Bikram Nembang received 45 votes while Sherpa received 39. Rajiv Paudel, another presidential candidate, did not receive a single vote.
Previously, Nembang and Sherpa were in the same group as they led a campaign against Ganesh Thapa.
But, over the past four years, the two had many differences in ideologies as Pankaj Bikram Nembang continuously questioned how Sherpa was running ANFA.
Similarly, Bir Bahadur Khadka from Nembang’s panel has become the senior vice-president beating Sixit Parajuli by four votes.
Dawa Lama, Deepak Khatiwada, Birat Jung Shahi and Dugra Bahadur KC have been elected vice-presidents of Nepali football’s governing body.
