Fifa, world soccer's governing body, today called on the FRMF, the Royal Moroccan Football Federation, to organise new elections in the first half of 2014, after declaring that it does not recognise this week's elections that resulted in Faouzi Lakjaa assuming the presidency.
Fifa's emergency committee said its decision was taken "in view of the fact that the FRMF had not fulfilled its duty to comply with Fifa directives."
It added: "Fifa has asked the FRMF to adopt statutes in conformity with the Fifa standard statutes before organising new elections in the first half of 2014. In the meantime, the outgoing executive committee will be in charge of managing the FRMF."
Lakjaa, vice-president of the Renaissance Sportive de Berkane club, had been elected unanimously for a four-year term on November 11, after his only opponent, Abdelilah El Akram, withdrew from the race.
Ali Fassi Fihri, president of the FRMF between 2009 and 2013, had decided against standing for a second term.
Fifa said the decision will "not have any effect" on Morocco's hosting of the Fifa Club World Cup, the annual soccer competition for the champion clubs of each continent, from December 11 to 21. Morocco will also host the 2014 Club World Cup.
