The resignation of Josep María Bartomeu to the presidency on October 27 in the midst of a crisis left Barcelona with uncertainty and the impossibility of managing the club with absolute normality. The new elections were indicated in the calendar for next January 24 but the authorities decided to postpone the vote due to “the current epidemiological situation” and there is absolute uncertainty in Catalan lands.

He Blaugrana made this determination official recently: “The Government has informed the Club that the current epidemiological situation does not make it possible to authorize the displacement outside the municipality to members who do not have their electoral roll within their municipal term on January 24, given the high mobility that this would entail ”. Faced with this warning, the club reported “the impossibility of holding the elections on the scheduled date due to the mobility restrictions decreed by the Government in the current context of pandemic, so the date of the elections should be delayed.”
