Algerian Football Federation Elects Walid Sadi as New President

On Thursday, the General Assembly of the Algerian Football Federation announced the appointment of Walid Sadi as the new president, succeeding Jahid Zwezif who stepped down from his position.

Sadi emerged as the sole candidate for the presidency after the nomination committee dismissed the applications of Abdel Karim Medawar and Mezian Egil.

During the election, Sadi and his executive team received an overwhelming majority of 76 votes in favor, with 5 votes against and one abstention.

Sadi will serve as the president of the Algerian federation for the remaining 18 months of Zvezde’s term. Zvezde had resigned in July of the previous year following his defeat in the Confederation of African Football (CAF) executive body elections.
