FIFA to decide president election date

Zurich (IANS) FIFA’s executive committee is to meet at the soccer world governing body’s headquarters on Monday to set the president election date.

FIFA leader Sepp Blatter held talks with his vice presidents late Sunday ahead of a meeting to set a date for an election, Xinhua news agency reported.

None of the regional leaders are yet candidates for the election but UEFA president, Frenchman Michel Platini, 60, is considering a run.

The meeting was held a day after former FIFA vice president Jeffrey Webb appeared in a New York court and pleaded not guilty to accepting bribes. He was released on $10 mn in bail.

Blatter was re-elected to a fifth term on May 29, just two days after Webb and six other FIFA officials were arrested in a raid on the luxury Zurich hotel where Sunday’s meeting took place.
