Jordan wants Ali bin Al Hussein for FIFA presidential post
London: The Jordanian FA has begun legal inquiries into whether defeated Fifa presidential candidate Prince Ali bin Al Hussein could replace Sepp Blatter without the need for a second election, it said on Tuesday. Jordan’s Prince Ali stood against Blatter but withdrew after gaining 73 votes to Blatter’s 133 in the first round of Friday’s vote.
Jordanian FA vice president Salah Sabra said they are investigating whether he could take the reins at world football’s governing body following Blatter’s resignation. “We started legal inquiries to find out the possibility of Prince Ali becoming Fifa president based on the fact that Blatter has stepped down from the election race,” he said.
