Barcelona will hold talks with the local government tomorrow, Friday, about whether the next elections will take place as planned or not, after the restrictions related to the Corona virus are extended.
Catalonia extended the restrictions, which prohibit people from leaving the areas in which they live except for work, study or medical reasons, from January 17 to January 24, the day set for elections.
Alba Bergs, Minister of Health in the Catalan government, said that local officials will explain to the club the possible scenarios and the evolution of the virus, adding that Barcelona, not the local government, will make the final decision.
Juan Laporta, the club’s presidential candidate, called for excluding club members from restrictions so that they could vote in the elections, which he said were important for the club in order to include new players and face financial problems.
Barcelona has run an interim committee with limited powers since Josep Maria Bartomeu resigned in October.
About 110,000 members of the club are eligible to vote, and ten polling places have been prepared in Catalonia and elsewhere in Spain. Internet or email voting is not permitted.
