The status quo endorses the status quo. Mohannadi says 1) he had a strong chance of winning, lol, 2) Weikert has "made positive changes to the sport," 3) since the AGM is in Germany and Weikert is German he "deserves" to be elected in his home country, 4) it wouldn't "be correct" for Saive to win since he's an outsider to international table tennis politics.

Khalil Al-Mohannadi: “After long discussions with my friends and most importantly my family, even though I believe I had a strong chance of winning the election, I have decided to run for a position on the ITTF Executive Committee.”

“I respect both the nominations of Thomas Weikert and Jean-Michel Saive to become the ITTF President, However, I have decided to support Thomas Weikert’s candidacy for the Presidency. Thomas has had two and a half years as President, where he has made positive changes to the sport, and I believe he deserves to be elected as President in his home country and have four more years to continue to work and implement his vision for our sport.”

“Jean-Michael Saive was a great player and ambassador for table tennis, which we all respect him for. Despite that, Jean-Michel has never held a high level international political table tennis position. So I don’t believe it is correct that his first position is that of ITTF President. But of course, if he wins I will be the first to congratulate him.”
