PSM Appreciates PSSI’s Decision to Hold KLB


PSSI CHAIRMAN, Mochamad Iriawan alias Iwan Bule chose to be willing to hold an Extraordinary Congress (KLB). The decision was taken after the Exco meeting at the PSSI GBK Arena Senayan office, after pressure from a number of football clubs in Indonesia.

Responding to this, the Media Officer of PSM Makassar, Sulaiman Karim, said he was grateful and relieved that finally PSSI itself took the initiative to hold an outbreak. “That way, there will be no more polemics. Some want it, some don’t, some are urgent, some are not,” he admitted.

Sulaiman said he received information today, Monday (31/10) PSSI wrote to FIFA asking for instructions on the implementation of the congress. “With such a step, hopefully after there is a plan, the league can finally run. Because from the start, it was the attitude of PSM Makassar, which we pressed for league certainty,” he said.

Regarding the outbreak, said PSM Makassar, Sulaiman said, from the start it was not urgent, but if there is an outbreak, it must be in accordance with the statutes, which is that 50% of the voter is required.

“KLB should not be held because of intervention outside the voter. If that happens, it could happen later, as in the past, our federation will be subject to sanctions,” said Sulaiman.

Separately, PSM Makassar President Director Sadikin Aksa added, PSM just wanted certainty about how the league would run and when the league would start again. “We PSM just want certainty about how the league will run. When it comes to KLB, we only have one vote. The total vote is 87, so we can’t do anything,” concluded Sadikin. (OL-15)
