"Sandro Rosell" not on support slips

The electoral board of FC Barcelona has earlier this week rejected the request by the candidacy of Barcelona presidential candidate Sandro Rosell that the name 'Sandro Rosell' would be mentioned on the support slips club members can sign to give their support to the former sports vice-president. The slips now mention Rosell's official first name 'Alexandre'.

The board refers to article 44.3.[2].c.[iii] of the club statutes that supposedly says the slips cannot mention nicknames but should carry the name of the candidate. The stipulation reads as follows: "Also printed in a clear position on the official slip published by the Club will be the name of the candidate for the Presidency leading the candidacy."

  1. note:

    rosell has now asked that "sandro rosell" would at least be mentioned on the voting slips on 13 june but the logical thing would be that this will not happen since the same rule seems to apply to the voting slips.

    article 49.1.[3] of the statutes reads as follows:
    "Voting slips, other than the option of including the club crest and a reference to the specific election process, may only feature the name of the Presidential candidate of each candidacy."
