This month’s presidential elections at Barcelona has been narrowed to three candidates after members signatures were verified by the club on Thursday.
On Thursday, Emili Rousaud was forced to drop out of the running despite submitting 2,510 signatures of members to Barcelona on Monday passing the threshold of 2,257 to transition from a pre-candidate to candidate. However, 500 signatures were unable to be verified, so he was unable to enter the final race.
