JAKARTA (30 April 2011) – The Normalisation Committee has announced the names of the 19 candidates which will be vying for the post of president of the FA of Indonesia (PSSI) for the election which will be held on 20 May 2011.
The Normalisation Committee which also serves as a Vetting Committee, was represented by chairman Agum Gumelar alongside the other members of Joko Driyono, Satim Sofyan, Dityo Pramono, FX Hadi Rudyatmo, Sukawi Sutarip and Siti Nurzanah.
The election on 20 May 2011 will be for the PSSI Executive Committee for the session 2011-2015.
Total candidature received for the post of president of PSSI was 33 which also included the names of General George Toisutta and Arifin Panigoro, who were banned by FIFA alongside Nirwan Bakrie and incumbent Nurdn Halid.
Their names have since been dropped from the list.
