Florentino Perez has been re-elected as Real Madrid president after the deadline for farther nominations passed without any other candidate joining the elections run.
A meeting of the club’s electoral board has confirmed that the 66-year-old will remain four more years in charge, after the deadline for candidacy submissions closed on Saturday night.
Consequently, Perez was automatically confirmed for the job and Real Madrid official website published the following statement:
In Madrid, on June 2, 2013, at 00:01 hours, at the headquarters of the Electoral Board of the Real Madrid Football Club, directors met in order to try and decide the matters listed below [that of the presidency].
Having no more than one bid submitted to the Board, under Article 40, paragraph E, Section 2 of the current By-Laws of the Club, Florentino Perez was proclaimed President of Real Madrid.
Perez has been Real Madrid president since 2000, with the exception of a three-year period when Ramon Calderon was in charge.
He will be invested on Tuesday June 4th and is expected to announce his new project for Real Madrid in the next few days.
