Sepp Blatter won FIFA presidential
re-election for an unprecedented
fifth term as challenger, Prince Ali
Bin Al Hussein of Jordan, conceded
after failing to win by a two-third
majority in the first round of voting
on Friday.
At FIFA’s 65th Congress in Zurich, the
209 member nations cast their
votes and the 79-year-old Blatter
garnered 133 votes to Prince Ali’s
73 of the 206 valid votes cast, but
failed to win the two-third majority
on the initial vote (more than 139
out of 209).
At that point, Prince Ali addressed
the voting members and conceded.
“It has been a wonderful journey in
terms of knowing you and working
with you, seeing the challenges
you have and I want to thank in
particular those of you who were
brave enough to support me,” Ali
said in conceding the election.
“But, having said that I will be
withdrawing from the race. Thank
you all very much and I wish you all
the best of luck for the future.”
Voting was done over secret paper
ballots in alphabetical order at two
special booths set up at each end of
the venue.
“I thank you, I thank that you have
accepted me,” said Blatter in a
rambling acceptance speech.
“We will bring this boat back, we
will bring it back to shore.”
Blatter vowed reform, adding, “I
will not touch the World Cup
because the World Cup is too
important.”

I wonder what is ahead for FIFA. Looks like it is going to be another similar term for Blatter. He has done some things well but he has failed to curb corruption
