The Presidential Election Commission of Korea Football Association (KFA) confirmed that Mr. Chung Mong-gyu, the only candidate registered for the KFA’s 54th presidential election, was elected as the new president of Korean football’s governing body. The decision was announced on Thursday, after the commission had qualified him as a member of the executive board.
Mr. Chung was the only candidate who applied for the presidency of KFA during the registration period from 21 to 23 December last year.

The decision took immediate effect on Thursday, with the president returning to the office after a month-long suspension since he registered for the candidacy on 2 December last year. .....
