FIFA: CAF Insists On Friday Elections, Backs Blatter

The Confederation of African Football has announced its opposition to the proposed postponement of the 65th FIFA Congress and the election for the presidency scheduled for Friday in Zurich, Switzerland.

The calls for postponement are championed by UEFA following the corruption scandal that erupted on Wednesday which led to the arrests of several FIFA executives.
 
CAF also stated on its website on Thursday that it will continue to back Sepp Blatter to retain the FIFA presidency.

The African body added on its website: "It should be noted that CAF is following with particular attention the events happening in the football family at this time.
 
"CAF reaffirms its commitment to work and to cooperate in safeguarding the ethical and moral values ​​that underlie the practice of the sport, its organization and administration; hence our full support to the measures initiated by FIFA in recent years in improving good governance.
 
"CAF reaffirms its readiness to cooperate in this direction with all the institutions that engage and subscribes to zero tolerance vis-a-vis offenders regardless of their profile or origin."
