BARCELONA, Spain (AP) – Barcelona’s presidential elections have been postponed due to the coronavirus pandemic, the club announced on Friday.
Barcelona said the January 24 elections were delayed due to “mobility restrictions imposed by the Catalan government in the current context of the (coronavirus) pandemic”.
“The current epidemiological situation does not allow travel outside the municipality to members who do not have a polling station in their municipality on January 24, given the high mobility that this would entail”, specified the club.
Barcelona said it had asked the Catalan government to allow postal voting, “a request the government has committed to consider.”
A new date for the elections has not been set. The three candidates for the club’s presidency are Joan Laporta, Víctor Font and Toni Freixa.
