The candidate for the elections of FC Barcelona and promoter of the vote of no confidence Jordi Farré reported this Wednesday that 16,521 required signatures have been reached to move forward the vote on the motion of censure to the current Board of Directors, chaired by Josep Maria Bartomeu.
The Censorship Vote Table, of which Farré is a member, has validated the minimum number of signatures required, among the 20,687 supports that the promoters of this motion gave. “Goal achieved!” Said the candidate on his social networks.
It is thus confirmed that the partners of the entity will vote to dismiss, or not, Bartomeu and his Board. A process already known in the entity, since they tried to undertake five motions of censure previously, although only two passed the cut of the signatures and went ahead.
It was in 1998, led by Joan Laporta’s ‘Elefant Blau’ against President Núñez, and in 2008, driven by Oriol Giralt against Laporta, although none of them prospered, failing to reach 66 percent necessary support in voting.
The deadlines to carry out the motion of censure
According to the club’s bylaws, and as long as Bartomeu does not resign before as rumored, the president must call the vote of no confidence within a minimum period of ten days and a maximum of 20.
The next movement goes through the ordinary meeting that the Board of Directors of Barça has scheduled next week.
However, deadlines may be altered by the pandemic situation, due to restrictions on the number of people indoors.
For censorship to go forward, they must vote two-thirds of the voters in favor, as long as they exceed 10 percent of the total with voting rights.
