Perez to continue as Real Madrid president after his re-election without opponents
Real Madrid president, Florentino Perez has been re-elected for another four years, after no other candidates challenged him for the position.
Perez has been president of the Spanish giants for a total of 18 years over two spells.
His first term in office was from 2000 until 2006 and then since 2009.
The 74-year-old called for the presidential elections on April 1, and gave potential candidates until April 12 to step forward to be approved by the club’s electoral board.
A candidate must have been a Real Madrid member or socio for at least 20 years and must have sufficient personal wealth to be able to obtain a bank guarantee worth at least 15% of the club’s budget.
It’s the third time in a row that Perez has been re-elected without a vote. He also didn’t face any opposition in 2013 and 2017.
