Barcelona presidential election might be postponed

Barcelona presidential election may get postponed due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

This is according to one of the four Barcelona presidential candidates, Font,  who believes that the election will get delayed as many of the members are scared.

Font is the second-favourite to win the election collecting 4710 signatures to have his name on the final ballot.

The ongoing pandemic and the lack of options to vote remotely will lead to the election getting postponed to a later date.

“Not being able to vote in your town, for example, is more than an objective reason to say that it cannot be that only 10,000-15,000 members vote,” Font said to Deportes Cuatro.

“There will be legitimacy problems.  The members who wants to vote must be able to do so safely. We are in a very critical moment of the pandemic, and if the club does not provide solutions so that in two weeks we can vote in a different way than planned, the elections cannot be held.

“Many members are scared, they have told us so.”
