LONDON, October 6. /TASS/. FIFA’s ethics committee has suspended South Korean FIFA presidential candidate Chung Mong-joon, Reuters reported on Tuesday.
It is reported that an investigation has been launched into financial support that Chung promised to FIFA’s Executive Committee. In 2010, FIFA’s former Vice President Chung Mong-joon contacted members of the Executive Committee pledging to invest $777 million into development of football in case South Korea wins the bid to host 2022 World Cup. It was earlier reported that FIFA’s Ethics Committee considers this situation as a conflict of interests comparable with buying votes.
FIFA snap presidential election will take place on 26 February 2016. Sepp Blatter will serve as president until then. Among candidates for FIFA presidential post are UEFA President Michel Platini; former CSKA coach Zico; former footballer from France David Ginola; retired Argentine professional footballer Diego Maradona; Liberian Football Association President Musa Bility; former Nigerian footballer Segun Odegbami; and Prince Ali bin Hussein of Jordan.
Candidates must register until October 26. In order to elected as FIFA President, a candidate must receive two-thirds of votes in the first round, and 50% plus one vote in the next rounds. FIFA President is elected for four years.
