An extraordinary general assembly vote Tuesday in Paris endorsed Max Mosley to continue as president of the FIA.

Mosley called for the vote two months ago, after a London tabloid printed a story and posted website video of his private life, alleging a Nazi-themed sado-masochistic session with prostitutes.

Full statement from the FIA:

During the Extraordinary General Assembly (EGA) held in Paris today, the FIA Member Clubs voted on a motion of confidence in the FIA President.

The FIA membership voted as follows:

For the motion: 103
Against the motion: 55
Abstentions: 7
Invalid votes 4

Voting in the EGA was made by secret ballot. Votes were counted in private by the FIA legal department in the presence of four scrutineers, selected by the EGA from a list of Delegates proposed by the Chairman of the meeting (the President of the FIA Senate).

The entire voting procedure was supervised by an external Huissier de Justice (French state-appointed public witness).
