BANGKOK: -- Former national police chief Pol Gen Somyot Poompunmuang was overwhelmingly voted the new president of Football Association of Thailand in an election held this morning.

Pol Gen Somyot received 62 out of 68 votes casted. The first runner-up, Dr Charnwit Pholcheevin received four votes and Mr Natthapol Teepsuwan received one vote.

He will succeed Mr Worawi Makudi who was banned from contesting the election by Fifa.

The election today was made possible after the Administrative Court rejected a petition by Pol Lt-Col Chaisilp Tharat, one of the candidates, for the court to postpone the election today on the ground that the Sports Authority of Thailand, the Fifa-appointed normalization committee and FAT had violated FAT regulations.

Somyot has the backing of TPL clubs Buriram United, Chon Buri and Bangkok Glass among others and King Power Group.

In view of the mess of corruption that FIFA has become, he is most suited to his new role.

His attention to the Koh Tao murders case in particular seemed to have a knock-on effect of sharpening up his business dealings.....whistling.gif

Their answer will always be inherited or married well.

Still, good to get rid of that <deleted> Worawi.

Do you really think this is an improvement?
