GENEVA — UEFA will not replace Michel Platini as president while he is pursuing legal routes to overturn his eight-year FIFA ban.
Platini was banned over a $2 million payment from FIFA in 2011 for uncontracted salary as an adviser to Sepp Blatter.
UEFA will meet in Budapest at a congress in May when a new president could have been elected before the European Championship.
But UEFA says its executive committee has "decided there will be no UEFA presidential election scheduled until the sports justice appeal bodies, including potentially the Court of Arbitration for Sport, have taken a decision."
UEFA general secretary Gianni Infantino entered the FIFA election race after Platini was banned.
