Joan Laporta, a complicated option

Joan Laporta is still receiving plenty of advice on running and not running. Lluís Bassat seems to be in theory the candidate who could be affected the most as far as votes are concenrend by the participation or not of the young lawyer from Barcelona who led the 'Elefant Blau'. If there's a Reyna candidacy and Laporta runs, there will be a bipolarization and then the others will want to be the 'center' candidate.


Jordi González, the president of the Mercabarna fan club, unveiled yesterday on Ona Catalana, the existence of a 'hidden candidate', a businessman able to present immediately 3.000 signatures and to arrive at 8.000.

He said he is a regular at the stadium, that he leads a group of 800 companies and that he was a member of the Chamber of Commerce and the Board of the Harbour. While he's awaiting how much support he could get, he puts forward as a condition that Evarist Murtra should be part of his future candidacy. Who is the blaugrana 'Florentino'?
