Well there we have it. Sepp Blatter has been re-elected unopposed for a 4th term as President of FIFA. He was supported by 186 of the 203 member associations.
It didn't help that he was unopposed for the position after his rival Mohamed Bin Hammam, president of the Asian Football Federation, pulled out after being suspended over bribery allegations.
RON for FIFA President!
In such similar positions, many organisations ensure a proper vote by putting RON (Re-Open Nominations) up as an alternative to the only nominated candidate. Would it have made any difference in this case had FIFA member associations been given the opportunity to formally vote to re-open the process if they weren't happy with Blatter at the helm?
So we have another 4 years of Sepp Blatter. He said on his re-election:
Well if there's a problem , why hasn't he sorted it out since he became FIFA President in 1998? His words are empty and I have no faith in FIFA whatsoever and until 2016 when his term ends, I have little hope of that changing for the better.
