The world football body, FIFA, has acknowledged the elections of a new Executive Committee of the Indonesia Football Association (PSSI) on 9 July 2011 and the election of Djohar Arifin Husin as the new PSSI president.

According to a statement published on the FIFA website, the "elective congress, observed by FIFA, AFC and AFF, was conducted in accordance with the PSSI statutes and the FIFA decisions.

"In addition, PSSI signed a Memorandum of Understanding  with the break-away league (Ligua Première, LPI) bringing the LPI under the control of PSSI. As such, all LPI competition-related matters will be administered by PSSI until the end of the LPI season scheduled for February 2012.

"Under these circumstances, FIFA considers that the conditions set by the FIFA Executive Committee, namely the elections of a new board and the control of LPI by PSSI are met and that there is therefore no reason to suspend PSSI.

"FIFA and AFC will monitor the implementation of the MOU and assist the new leadership through their development programs."
