Ikram defeated Marc Coudron of Belgium 79-47 in the 48th FIH Congress held.
126 of the 129 National Societies cast valid votes.
Ikram’s term will be two years to complete the mandate of the previous chief, Batra, who stepped down on July 18.
Seif Ahmed was the acting president of the FIH after Batra’s resignation from the top position after the Delhi Supreme Court asked him to stop serving as head of the Indian Olympic Association (IOA).
Batra, who became president of FIH in 2016, resigned in July. He also gave up his membership of the International Olympic Committee (IOC), which was directly related to his IOA position.
The board of directors of the FIH consists of a chairman; eight full members – four female and four male – half are renewed every two years; a representative of the athletes; presidents of the continental federations; DIRECTOR; any (non-voting) member co-opted to the board of directors pursuant to Article 7.1(c) of the FIH Articles of Association.
