The AHF Congress members elected the officials.
Akhtar, also a former Olympian, was elected as an Executive Board member, Mujahid was elected as one of the five AHF vice-presidents while Tayyab was elected as the AHF chief executive officer.
Akhtar will also act as adviser to newly-elected president of the AHF, Tengku Abdullah Sultan Ahmad Shah, who was elected unopposed in place of late Azlan Shah.
FIH president Leandro Negre also attended the Congress. AHF Congress comprising 60 members took part in the elections.
Meanwhile, in a telephonic talk, Mujahid reckoned it was a great success for the PHF to get three positions at the AHF.
He said Pakistan now had four officials at the AHF, underlining former PHF secretary Asif Bajwa had already been working in one of the committees of the Asian hockey governing body.
Top priority of all PHF officials at AHF, Mujahid stressed, would be to promote hockey across Asia, needless to say in Pakistan too, where no team in recent years had been willing to come due to security concerns.
“I hope in coming years [the officials’] main focus will be on bringing international hockey back to Pakistan,” the PHF secretary stated.
