Liberia Football Association protest against CAF election rules
Liberia's Football Association (LFA), has taken the continental football body, the Confederation of African Football (CAF) to the Court of Arbitration in Sport, relating to a new rules regarding the election of the CAF president.

Back in September, CAF, adopted a new controversial rule, which excludes members from outside the executive committee for running for the body's leadership.

According to the new rule, a person seeking the CAF presidency, must be an existing voting member of the executive committee.

The rule bares individuals such as Jacques Anouma, one of Africa's representatives on the Fifa executive committee, along with South African, Danny Jordan, the 2010 World Cup CEO.

Incumbent CAF president, Issa Hayatou, has been the football body's leader since 1987, and is currently the only candidate for the elections planned to take place in March 2013, in Morocco.

The LFA has challenged this new rule, and has called for the new amendment to be suspended, calling on CAF to return the status before it was adopted.
