Victor Font gives reason why he supports vote of no confidence against Bartomeu despite it hurting his campaign

Holding elections now will make the new board responsible for the failures of the current one but still, Victor Font believes that the current board should be gone as soon as possible so he supports the vote of no confidence.

Although the situation is not in their favour, the presidential candidate thinks the president can be dismissed.

"In the coming months, important decisions must be made for the future of the club: staff renewal, Rakuten and Beko contract renewal, Espai Barca, naming rights, etc... It is key that these decisions are made in the context of a new project.

"The current Board of Directors has shown that it is not prepared to take such decisions and that is why we have called for its immediate resignation and for the elections (scheduled for next year) to be advanced.

"The advancement of elections does not favour any pre-candidate because it means using a one-year term and having to close the accounts for a year that has already begun (with all the associated risks). It only favours Barca's interests.

"That's why, since the president is refusing to advance the elections, 'Si al Futur' is supporting the motion of censure promoted by 'Mes Que Una Mocio'. It is an act of coherence and service to the club.

"The statutes are designed to make it (almost) impossible for a motion to thrive and the pandemic complicates it even more. But if club members want, they can. It depends on all of us."

The initiators of the vote of no confidence against Barcelona's president Josep Maria Bartomeu have begun collecting signatures on Monday, August 31. They need to gather 16,520 signatures in 14 days for the motion to be successful.

The current president survived a similar vote of no confidence back in 2017. Follow us on Google newsTwitter and on Facebook
