Giancarlo Abete is hopeful that the Italian Football Federation can find a new President today.
All bodies of football on the peninsula are voting on Monday to determine the new leader of Calcio, with Carlo Tavecchio thought to be the clear favourite.
Abete will take temporary charge should no one be voted for outright, but the former President is confident that won’t happen.
“I hope that the FIGC will have a President,” he is reported as saying by ANSA.
“I have never believed that someone should just be anointed.
“We belong to a democracy.”
