18:00 - 19:00

Two former Catalan presidents have voted this afternoon: Josep Pujol (1980-2003) was accompanied by Sandro Rosell, while Pasqual Maragall (2003-2006) was accompanied by Marc Ingla.

Xavier Sala i Martin (treasurer): "I think everything is going well. I have nothing to say about the campaign, the members are voting now and that's it. I'm coming here to vote and later to assist the game of Barcelona Atlètic."

Nunez: "This is an important day for the club. I think it was a good campaign. What I expect from the next president? First I should know who the next president is."

Former Barcelona president Josep Lluis Nunez (1978-2000) has cast his vote.

Marc Ingla: "This day is passing very quickly. I'm walking around the whole time, greeting fans and it's all very emotional. We have good feelings, it's clear the undecided voters have come out to vote. We have to congratulate the club for the organization. A little bad point were the Boixos Nois hooligans insulting people and cheering in favour of a candidate."

Marc Carrasco (candidacy Agustí Benedito): "The turn-out is great and shows how unique this club is. The people react well to Agusti and shows that we have done a good job."

80% from the voters until now are from the province of Barcelona, 11% from the rest of Catalonia, 5% from the rest of Spain and 4% come from abroad.

Manel Arroyo (candidacy Sandro Rosell): "It was a nice campaign, with a lot of contact with the fans. The energy you receive from the people makes you go on."

At 6 pm, 42.325 people had already cast their vote, which is a particaption rate of 35.67%. In 2003, there were 35.165 voters, which was 37.27%.

Benedito: "I'm receiving a lot of support of the fans. I think they are aware that these elections are important for the future of the club. I think we're doing well, let's see if that will be confirmed later."
