The Ethics Committee of FIFA has suspended Blatter, Platini and Valcke for three months. It has justified this suspension because of developments in the ongoing investigations into FIFA by the Swiss Judiciary.
This means that the favourite, Michel Platini could be prevented from being a candidate in the Election to become the next FIFA President on February 26, 2016. All candidates must notify their intention to stand for election before October 26, 2015. Their credentials will then be examined and this could even lead to their exclusion to stand.
In three months time Blatter will probably be free to resume his duties as President, until he resigns just before the FIFA Election to replace him ! This is what everyone expects after his repeated promises.
But, what will he do if he considers that the "good ship FIFA" is in peril ? What if he thinks there is "no capable candidate", or "future Captain" left to be elected ? Would Blatter not feel morally obliged to continue as President and not resign ...
Blatter should be obliged, to resign legally, and before October 26, 2015 !
