Yunus Nusi followed with 54 votes and Zainudin Amali had 44 votes. This result also led to the position of Vice Chairman of PSSI being filled by Ratu Tisha Destria and Yunus Nusi.

However, Yunus Nusi decided to resign because he considered himself no better than Zainudin Amali. Yunus also felt that he was not fit to fill the PSSI high-ranking chair.

“Of course I have to measure myself that I, Yunus Nusi, do not feel better than Pak Zainudin Amali,” said Yunus Nusi.

“He has given his best for Indonesian football, he has given his best for sports in Indonesia,” he said.

“I have been with him for three years and know exactly his sincerity to advance Indonesian football,” said Yunus Nusi.

“I really don’t deserve to be here and what I really deserve is Zainudin Amali and Mr. Erick Thohir leading football forward. For the sake of Indonesian football, I have to make that decision (to step down),” said Yunus Nusi.
