Four women are candidates to be elected as the 25th member of the FIFA Executive Committee at the FIFA Congress to be held in Mauritius on 30th and 31st May 2013. The mandate will be for a period of four years.

In the framework of the FIFA reform process, and following a proposal made by the FIFA President, Joseph S. Blatter, at the 2011 Congress in Zurich, a revision of the FIFA Statutes was approved by a vote taken at the 2012 Congress in Budapest for an additional Executive Committee member, a woman, to be appointed.

Each confederation had a deadline of 31st January 2013 to propose a female candidate.

Four confederations have proposed a candidate for the election at this year’s FIFA Congress:

AFC: Moya Dodd 

CAF: Lydia Nsekera 

CONCACAF: Sonia Bien-Aime 

OFC: Paula Kearns
