FA wants postponement of FIFA election
31.05.2011By Play the Game
On 19 May, the FA stated that they would refrain from voting because of the allegations and the lack of transparency surrounding the organisation.
“Events of the last few days have reinforced our views, and we call on FIFA and ask other national associations to support us with two initiatives.
“First, to postpone the election and give credibility to this process, so any alternative reforming candidate could have the opportunity to stand for President.
“Secondly, to appoint a genuinely independent external party to make recommendations regarding improved governance and compliance procedures and structures throughout the FIFA decision making processes for consideration by the full membership," says Bernstein in the statement.
The FA believes that these measures are necessary to rebuild trust in the way football is governed.
