Barcelona Presidential Candidate Withdraws From Race

Barcelona Presidential Candidate Withdraws From Race

Two-time president of FC Barcelona, Joan Laporta is contesting to be president of the club again and challenged by Victor Font and Toni Freixa.

Former president Josep Maria Bartomeu stepped down in October instead of facing a vote of no confidence, with Carles Tusquets installed as the president of the temporary management committee.

Another candidate, Emili Rousaud, withdrew from the running earlier Thursday.

The club still plans to celebrate elections this month in spite of the coronavirus pandemic, barring instruction from the Catalan government and health authorities.

Resolving the future of star player Lionel Messi and dealing with the club’s economic woes are the main tasks for the next president.
