Historic: 19,380 signatures against Bartomeu's management

It is the attempted Censorship Vote with the most signatures ever. The Board must set the referendum in 20 days. It takes two-thirds of a yes to the motion to overthrow the president.


19.380 supports (in the absence of 219 doubtful signatures). This is the already historic official number of partners who, unhappy with the management of the president of Barça, Josep Maria Bartomeu, have signed the ballots that sign that the Vote of Censorship promoted by the Més que una Moció platform, integrated by three candidates (Jordi Farré, Víctor Font and Lluís Fernández Alá) and eight opinion groups. The Barça Censorship Vote Table announced this Thursday the closing of the count of signatures with these data: 444 444Of the 20,687 signatures submitted by the organizers of the motion of censure, all of them already processed, a total of 19,380 are valid, 1,088 are invalid and 219 are doubtful, and this Friday the Board will finish the process of their validation or not.

From now on, the Censorship Vote Table will communicate the data to the Barça Board of Directors, which, within a period of ten to twenty days, will have to set a date for the referendum that will judge Bartomeu's management. That, if the health authorities allow a vote. In principle, and although the Barça club does not have the final OK from the L'Esport Secretariat or the Public Health Secretariat, the vote can be carried out. Once the date has been set, it will be valid if at least 10% of Barça's membership votes (about 11,000 members of almost 110,000 subscribers). If two thirds of the voters support the Vote of Censure, Bartomeu and the Board of Directors must resign.

It is the attempted Censorship Vote with the most signatures in history. In the one that started against Josep Lluís Núñez in 1998, 6,014 signatures were collected. In the one suffered by Joan Laporta, up to 9,473 partners signed for their management to be voted and approved or not in 2008. The mobilization against Bartomeu has moved twice as many partners according to the official count. Now, when the health authorities allow it, it is time to vote.
