A majority of the ad hoc election commission on Tuesday reiterated that there were irregularities in last week's Football Association of Thailand (FAT) presidential poll.
Worawi Makudi defeated Virach Charnpanich in Thursday's election to retain the FAT presidency but Virach and his supporters have since complained of foul play.
Three of the five members of the commission yesterday submitted their report on the election to the Sports Authority of Thailand (SAT).
They are chairman Pol Maj Gen Pisut Pumpichet, Chanin Kaenhiran and Thana Thamvihan.
Under an agreement, the three were selected by Virach while Worawi picked the other two. At the same time, Worawi chose two of the three members of the appeals committee and Virach one.
Pisut, Chanin and Thana have refused to approve the election result. Worawi has said the commission was not authorised to approve or reject the result but Chanin argued yesterday it was.
Chanin said the appeals committee made some dubious decisions and that it was against the regulations that some members of the FAT executive board, including Worawi, voted in the election.
Worawi has said he had resigned from his FAT position ahead of the election but Chanin challenged him to provide proof.
The final decision whether to approve the result rests with the SAT.
Meanwhile, seven clubs, who were eligible voters in the election, yesterday submitted the SAT a letter urging it to reject the result.
The seven are Pattaya FC, Pattaya United, Sri Racha, Chonburi, Rayong sports club, Kasem Bundit University and Kasetsart University.
Pataya FC chairman Natthapol Panyakananukul said several clubs would file civil suits against the FAT, each seeking 50 million baht in damages.
