Tokyo Sexwale to run for FIFA pres­i­dency

The Kurdish Globe - - NEWS -

The former po­lit­i­cal pris­oner is the fifth can­di­date to throw their hat into the ring to re­place Sepp Blat­ter, who re­mains sus­pended by FIFA over in­ves­ti­ga­tions into an al­leged "dis­loyal pay­ment" to Michel Pla­tini - whose own bid for pres­i­dency ap­pears dead as he is also banned.

Sexwale, 62, al­ready has the sup­port of the South African FA, which is back­ing his bid.

Can­di­dates have un­til Mon­day to an­nounce they are run­ning for the pres­i­dency, with the elec­tion set to be held at the end of Fe­bru­ary.

Former FIFA of­fi­cial Jerome Cham­pagne, Prince Ali Bin Al Hus­sein of Jor­dan and former Trinidad and Tobago mid­fielder David Nakhid are also stand­ing.
