The board of directors of FC Barcelona, represented by Carles Tusquets, the interim president of the Catalan institution, would have set for March 7 the postponement of the presidential election, report Mundo Deportivo and Radio Catalunya. The three candidates for this election still in the running, namely the former club president Joan Laporta, Victor Font and Toni Freixa, would have agreed on this date of March 7.
The postal vote approved at the end of February?
The date chosen would also correspond to the forecasts of the Generalitat, the government of the autonomous region of Catalonia, which still has to authorize the postal vote for the election of the president by its 110,000 socios (supporters-shareholders). And for that, it is necessary to modify the Law of Sport of Catalonia in order to incorporate the postal vote, which could be approved between the end of February and the third week of March, the date of March 7 being in this fork.
The announcement of a postponement date can only be official once the government of the Autonomous Region of Catalonia is able to guarantee that it is possible to vote by post on that date of March 7. The election of the president of Barça, initially scheduled for January 24, was postponed Friday because of the Covid-19. The region is subject to severe travel restrictions to fight the pandemic, which has left more than 53,000 dead in Spain for more than two million confirmed cases.
