Platini dropped from FIFA poll
a candidate for the election following integrity checks.
However, the Frenchman could be added should his ban end before February’s election, the BBC reports.
Prince Ali bin al-Hussein, Jerome Champagne, Gianni Infantino, Sheikh Salman bin Ebrahim al-Khalifa and Tokyo Sexwale have been approved.
FIFA said it would not comment further on the reasons for Bility’s exclusion, which the 48-year-old can challenge at the Court of Arbitration for Sport.
The election is to find a successor to the suspended Sepp Blatter, who is under criminal investigation.
The 79-year-old Swiss announced he would be stepping down in June, with world football’s governing body at the centre of a corruption scandal.
