Emili Rousaud steps out of Barcelona presidential election race

The candidate may not have enough valid signatures and has pulled out

Emili Rousaud has stepped away from the Barcelona presidential race, leaving just three candidates. Joan Laporta, Victor Font and Toni Freixa.

On Thursdays, according to sources from the interim board, Rousaud presented the club a formal resignation from the race without waiting for the validated signatures recount.

Rousaud had delivered 2,510, just above the 2,257 necessary. And he said, having checked them,, there were 1,952 valid, 50 void and 500 pending validation.

Laporta is the favourite, despite his protestations, with Victor Font running him close. Friexa has plenty of ground to make up.
