Persatuan Silat Kebangsaan Malaysia (Pesaka), the national sports association (NSA) for silat sports, is beset with internal problems so much so it has affected selection of players for the Laos SEA Games, which will take place in December.

"We have not had a systematic selection process for over two years now and hardly know what is happening in the states. This is a disaster, a lot of our plans have also been derailed," Pesaka assistant secretary-general Bahrain Ibrahim told Bernama.

He said this was the result of an internal power struggle in the association and hoped the Sports Commissioner would step in to put things right.

As a last resort, he said, if the problem was not settled, Pesaka planned to send the juniors from the Silat Development Camp in Kuantan to compete in Vientiane.
