Country trying to avoid FIFA sanctions

CARACAS, Venezuela -- Venezuela's Supreme Court ordered the country's soccer federation on Friday to hold elections within a week to avoid suspension by FIFA.

Venezuelan Football Federation president Rafael Esquivel is expected to be re-elected, but federation member Jesus Berardinelli questioned the validity of the voting process, prompting Venezuelan soccer authorities to postpone the election.

Justice Fernando Vega Torrealba said the federation must elect its president on March 17 to avoid the possible sanction, which threatens two World Cup qualifiers at the end of the month.
