ZURICH May 29 FIFA president Sepp Blatter will
stand unopposed for a new term on Wednesday after world soccer's
governing body said on Sunday the election could go ahead.
Mohamed bin Hammam, who had been Blatter's only rival for
the presidency, was temporarily suspended from soccer activity
on Sunday after FIFA's ethics committee decided he did have a
case to answer over the sport's bribey inquiry.
Bin Hammam, the Qatari head of the Asian Football
Confederation, had already announced he was pulling out of the
race with a vow to clear his name.
He and FIFA vice-president Jack Warner, who was also
provisionally suspended on Sunday, have both denied any
wrongdoing in the bribes-for-votes case.
