Jack Warner, the former Fifa official accused of corruption, has seen his eroding power base decline further after he conceded he had lost his seat in the Trinidad and Tobago parliament.
Warner, one of 14 people indicted in the US-led prosecution involving international football’s governing body Fifa, looked to have lost his Chaguanas East constituency.
“This is my last hurrah in politics,” the 71-year-old former Fifa vice-president said after the vote.
Warner, 72, launched his own party, the ILP, in 2013 after the prime minister, Kamla Persad-Bissessar, sacked him from his cabinet.
On Wednesday David Rowley’s People’s National Movement won 23 seats in the 41-member House of Representatives in Monday’s vote, ousting Kamla Persad-Bissessar’s coalition.
Warner is currently fighting extradition to the United States.
US Department of Justice papers claim the former Concacaf president receied $10 million as a bribe to support South Africa’s bid to host the 2010 World Cup finals.
