Al-Shalmani was re-elected to serve another four years during the Libyan Football Federation General Assembly held in the town of Tobruk.
“I am very happy to be given another mandate to run football in the country. Let us work together for the good of football,” said Al-Shalmani.
Out of the 117 delegates who participated in the Assembly out of the 120, 62 voted for Al-Shalmani, while 54 voted for former Sports Minister (2014-2015) Ibrahim Shaka. This was during the second round of the elections.
