KUALA LUMPUR, Malaysia (AP) — The head of soccer's governing body for Asia has announced his bid for re-election and urged that election "rule and regulations must be respected."

Asian Football Confederation President Sheikh Salman bin Khalifa took office in 2013 to finish the term of former president Mohamed bin Hammam. Bin Hammam was banned for life from all football-related activities by world-governing body FIFA.

Sheikh Salman of Bahrain will be seeking his third term. He completed Bin Hammam's term and then was re-elected in 2015.

Elections will be held next April.
