Jerusalem News Agency – Barcelona’s interim president announces election date


Barcelona president Carles Tusquets announced Monday the date for the club’s presidential elections, after former president Josep Maria Bartomeu and his board members resigned.

“Barcelona will hold presidential elections on Christmas (24-25 December), and we will do everything possible so that the elections are held on this date,” Carles said during a press conference held on Monday evening.

He added, “It is not possible to hold the elections earlier than that, given that the Catalan elections have been scheduled at the end of next February, in addition to the health difficulties caused by the Coronavirus pandemic,” and he concluded: “Logically, I will talk with all the candidates.”

It is reported that Josep Maria Bartomeu announced his resignation from his position and his council days ago, after a large number of club members launched a campaign against him to withdraw confidence.
