Alejandro Dominguez Elected CONMEBOL President
- Updated: January 26, 2016
Asuncion, Paraguay – Paraguayan Alejandro Dominguez has been elected president of the governing body of South American soccer, CONMEBOL.
Dominguez was the only candidate and received all 10 votes from the 10 member federations. Wilmar Valdez of Uruguay withdrew his candidacy before the voting began.
Dominguez takes over a position vacant after the last three presidents were arrested in the sweeping corruption scandals surrounding FIFA.
“My biggest promise is to restore credibility to CONMEBOL,” the 44-year-old told the confederation members. “We want to emphasize transparency. We want to return to the essence of football, the values and the fair play.”
“This will be the toughest game of our lives,” said Dominguez.
The last president, Juan Angel Napout of Paraguay, has been extradited to the United States, while Eugenio Figueredo of Uruguay faces charges in his own country and Nicolas Leoz of Paraguay is under house arrest.
