A rather large number of ex-FIFA referees turn politician. Must be something about being the boss or wanting to be one. Philippe Leuba, FIFA ref from 1999 till the end of 2005 wants you to vote for him and his Center Droite Parti libéral Vaudois. He has his own web site from where we got this picture of him.

career
Leuba started as a player and became a national referee in 1993. he was in charge of the Swiss cup final in 2002. He stopped because he couldn't combine the travelling and the hard work as a referee with his day job, his political ambitions and with having a family.

matches
Mostly UEFA Cup early stage.
