Real Madrid president Perez calls for new club elections

Madrid (AFP) – Real Madrid president Florentino Perez has called for new club elections to be held, the La Liga giants announced on Thursday.

The 74-year-old has been in charge at the Santiago Bernabeu since 2009 and was also president from 2000-2006, when he was best known for ushering in the ‘Galacticos’ era.

“Following on from today’s board meeting… the president has requested that the electoral board issue the call for elections for the president and board of directors,” the club said in a statement.

Perez was last reelected in 2017, when he was unopposed.

His detractors criticise a reform in the club’s statutes from 2012, which makes it harder to run for president.

Since then, any candidate must have been a Real Madrid member for at least 20 years and be able to guarantee a part of the team’s budget with their personal assets.
