The 58-year-old will officially be inaugurated as the club’s president at the Camp Nou at 6pm local time – 5pm GMT – to serve his second spell in the position, having previously been in the hotseat between 2003 and 2010.
Political opponents Sandro Rosell and Josep Maria Bartomeu had occupied the position in the decade since.
Laporta, who secured the presidency with 30,184 votes (54.28 percent of the votes) will now be tasked with steering the club through a turbulent financial period and providing stability.
