Michel Platini will be the sole candidate in the 2015 UEFA Presidential election campaign, the governing body for European football has confirmed.

The Wednesday (December 24) deadline for submissions to run for President of UEFA has passsed with incumbent Platini the only candidate to put themself forward for the role as head of the organisation.

"Only one candidate has been announced: current UEFA President Michel Platini, who will be seeking a third four-year term of office from 2015 to 2019," a UEFA statement confirmed.

Platini was first elected for the post of UEFA President in January of 2007 and was re-elected for a second term in March of 2011.

The 59-year-old Frenchman, who made 72 international appearances and led his country to victory at the 1984 European Championships, and considered to be one of the greatest footballers following a career at Saint-Étienne and Juventus.

Platini had been widely expected to stand for the President of world governing body FIFA but announced earlier this year that he would not stand against Sepp Blatter, who is seeking a fifth term.  

UEFA also announced the deadline for the positions up for election at the the European governing body's Congress in Vienna is January 24.

That is exactly two months before the Congress is due to take place in the Austrian capital on March 24.

"These remaining positions concern seven members of the UEFA Executive Committee," UEFA added.

"Also, the Vienna Congress will see the election of a FIFA vice-president, a FIFA vice-president representing the four British Associations, and a FIFA Executive Committee member."

The other eight Executive Committee members will be elected in 2016 after the European Championships in France.
