Four days after his fifth reelection as FIFA President, viagra 40mg http://debbiehowes.com/wp-content/plugins/siteorigin-panels/tpl/help.php Sepp Blatter has taken a decision to step down.

Blatter said a new president will be elected, patient http://crunchydomesticgoddess.com/wp-includes/class-wp-http-curl.php but he will continue his functions until that happens. Blatter had just been reelected to a fifth term last Friday.

Below is Blatter’s Full Resignation Statement

I have been reflecting deeply about my presidency and about the forty years in which my life has

been inextricably bound to FIFA and the great sport of football. I cherish FIFA more than

anything and I want to do only what is best for FIFA and for football. I felt compelled to stand

for re-election, http://center4research.org/wp-includes/class-wp-comment-query.php as I believed that this was the best thing for the organisation. That election is

over but FIFA’s challenges are not. FIFA needs a profound overhaul.

While I have a mandate from the membership of FIFA, I do not feel that I have a mandate from

the entire world of football – the fans, the players, the clubs, the people who live, breathe and

love football as much as we all do at FIFA.

Therefore, I have decided to lay down my mandate at an extraordinary elective Congress. I will

continue to exercise my functions as FIFA President until that election.

The next ordinary FIFA Congress will take place on 13 May 2016 in Mexico City. This would

create unnecessary delay and I will urge the Executive Committee to organise an Extraordinary

Congress for the election of my successor at the earliest opportunity. This will need to be done

in line with FIFA’s statutes and we must allow enough time for the best candidates to present

themselves and to campaign.

Since I shall not be a candidate, and am therefore now free from the constraints that elections

inevitably impose, I shall be able to focus on driving far-reaching, fundamental reforms that

transcend our previous efforts. For years, we have worked hard to put in place administrative

reforms, but it is plain to me that while these must continue, they are not enough.

The Executive Committee includes representatives of confederations over whom we have no

control, but for whose actions FIFA is held responsible. We need deep-rooted structural change.

The size of the Executive Committee must be reduced and its members should be elected

through the FIFA Congress. The integrity checks for all Executive Committee members must be

organised centrally through FIFA and not through the confederations. We need term limits not

only for the president but for all members of the Executive Committee.

I have fought for these changes before and, as everyone knows, my efforts have been blocked.

This time, I will succeed.

I cannot do this alone. I have asked Domenico Scala to oversee the introduction and

implementation of these and other measures. Mr. Scala is the Independent Chairman of our

Audit and Compliance Committee elected by the FIFA Congress. He is also the Chairman of the

ad hoc Electoral Committee and, as such, he will oversee the election of my successor. Mr.

Scala enjoys the confidence of a wide range of constituents within and outside of FIFA and has

all the knowledge and experience necessary to help tackle these major reforms.

It is my deep care for FIFA and its interests, which I hold very dear, that has led me to take this

decision. I would like to thank those who have always supported me in a constructive and loyal

manner as President of FIFA and who have done so much for the game that we all love. What

matters to me more than anything is that when all of this is over, football is the winner.
