Djohar Arifin Husin elected new PSSI Chairman

By Paul Williams

Djohar Arifin Husin was today elected as the Chairman of the PSSI, gaining 61 votes at the PSSI Congress.

Held at the Sunan Hotel in Solo, Central Java, the Congress has been shrouded in controversy for months with candidates pulling out late, claims of vote-buying and intervention from FIFA.

Djohar Arifin Husin is a current advisor to the Indonesian Minister of Sport, former Chairman of the North Sumatra Province FA and secretary general of KONI, the national sports committee of Indonesia.

The result is seen as a great one for Indonesian football, with the opportunity for actual change and reform now a real possibility.
