The Confederation of African Football (CAF) has opposed postponing today?s FIFA presidential election despite soccer?s governing body being rocked by a corruption scandal.
?The Confederation of African Football opposes any postponement of the 65th FIFA Congress and the presidency election scheduled on May 29, 2015 in Zurich,? the CAF said in a statement issued on its website.
The body says it has ?reiterated its support for Sepp Blatter?s candidacy?, referring to the FIFA president?s bid for re-election.
Following a meeting Wednesday in Zurich, CAF said it ?opposes any postponement? of the election, and ?reiterated its support for the candidacy of Sepp Blatter.?
FIFA is facing calls to postpone the election after FIFA executives were arrested to face racketeering charges from the United States Department of Justice.
