Rubiales Elected President of Spanish Soccer Federation

MADRID Ė Luis Manuel Rubiales on Thursday was elected president of the Spanish soccer federation, receiving an absolute majority of the votes to defeat the other candidate, Juan Luis Larrea, in the first balloting held during the organizationís general assembly.

Rubiales, the 40-year-old former president of the Association of Spanish Footballers, won by a vote of 80-56 to succeed Angel Maria Villar, who had headed the organization since July 1988, and will complete the latterís 2017-2020 term.

The Spanish soccer federation on March 16 called for an election to choose a successor for Villar, who was sacked by Spainís Administrative Court for Sport.
