The upcoming presidential elections have been at the forefront of Barcelona news in recent months and the club have now decided upon a new date.
The elections had originally been scheduled for 24 January but they were postponed earlier this month due to the rate of infection of the Covid-19 pandemic in the Catalan region.

A falta d’oficialitat, la reunió d’avui ha servit per ratificar que es podrà votar per correu amb totes les garanties. pic.twitter.com/zSbS37ADlz
