The vote of no-confidence exceeds the bar of the 16,521 signatures required

Only 964 signatures were missing to reach the bar of the 16,521 necessary to give the green light to the motion of censure and they were obtained this noon, according to the promoter of the vote of censure and member of the Board, Jordi Farré, throught social media. With a brief, but forceful message, ‘Goal achieved!’, the candidate confirmed that the motion of censure continues with the process to remove the current president Josep Maria Bartomeu and the board of the club's regency.

Once the figure of 16,521 signatures has been reached and exceeded, the next step is for the Table to call a referendum where it will be the partner with the right to vote who approves or not the motion. 66.6% adhesion is needed for the vote of no confidence to be approved and the board to be forced to resign automatically. In the previous referendum, promoted by the lawyer Oriol Giralt against Joan Laporta, he was left at the doors when he obtained 60% of the support.

As of Thursday, the Table will have to agree on the day of the referendum, which cannot be before ten business days or after twenty, so looking at the calendar it seems that the date of the Sunday, October 25, one day after the El Clásico at the Camp Nou, it would be the most feasible. The vote must be in person and at the Camp Nou, according to the club's Statutes.

In any case, we will have to wait for Bartomeu's next steps, since some sources speculate that he may present his resignation after the extraordinary meeting scheduled for Tuesday, October 13.
