PSSI KLB Accelerated to February 16 According to FIFA’s Request

PSSI confirmed that the Extraordinary Congress (KLB) for the election of the general chairman, vice chairman and members of the Executive Committee (Exco) will be held on February 16, 2023 as requested by FIFA.

Uploaded on the PSSI page, today, that date is earlier than the previous plan made by PSSI, namely March 18, 2023.

“There is a change through a letter from FIFA and we will follow the directions from FIFA,” said PSSI Secretary General Yunus Nusi.

However, in contrast to the KLB, the schedule for the Ordinary Congress for the determination of the Election Committee (KP) and the Election Appeals Committee (KBP) is actually slower than the previous plan.

FIFA wants PSSI to hold the congress on January 14, 2023 or a week later than the original plan.

Initially, PSSI had written to the voters that the regular congress for KP and KBP would be held on January 7, 2023. However, with the change in schedule, PSSI will write back to the “voters”.

“With this, we will immediately send a letter to all PSSI ‘voters’ regarding the change in the date of the congress according to the answer to FIFA’s letter,” said Yunus.

Later, KP and KBP will work to process things towards an outbreak on February 16, 2023.

PSSI decided to accelerate the implementation of the Extraordinary Congress (KLB) for the election of the general chairman and new Exco members, which would normally be held in November 2023, after holding an emergency meeting on October 28, 2022 at the PSSI Office, Jakarta.

The pressure for PSSI to immediately hold an outbreak initially came from the Joint Independent Fact Finding Team (TGIPF) formed by the Indonesian government following the tragedy at the Kanjuruhan Stadium, Malang, which killed 135 people and injured hundreds of others. (Ant/OL-4)
