Oceania seeks to regain World Cup vote for 2018 & 22
Temarii was sanctioned for breaching three principles in Fifa's ethics code
The Oceania Football Confederation believes it can replace suspended Fifa vice-president Reynald Temarii and vote for the 2018 and 2022 World Cup hosts.
The hosts are set to be chosen by 22 rather than 24 voters on 2 December after OFC chief Temarii, and Nigeria's Amos Adamu were suspended by Fifa.
The OFC said in a statement: "An inquiry has been made to Fifa to seek further clarification on this."
Fifa had earlier said a replacement cannot be named while Temarii appeals.
It had also been reported that the OFC was set to ask Temarii to stand down, potentially clearing the way for a replacement to vote in Zurich on Thursday.
However, it will now test its belief that it can appoint a replacement for its suspended representative and send acting president, David Chung, to Switzerland as the 23rd voting member of Fifa's ruling panel.
The Oceania executive committee also decided on Saturday that it would not attempt to immediately replace executive member Ahongalu Fusimalohi from Tonga, who got a three-year Fifa ban.
The statement said: "No replacement will be sought for the vacant OFC executive committee position while the appeal process is still open to Mr Fusimalohi."
Temarri and Adamu were banned for a year and three years respectively after a Sunday Times undercover investigation alleged that they had asked for money in return for their vote. The pair were cleared of corruption, but received bans and fines from Fifa's ethics committee for failing to report the approaches.
