After the failure to conciliate with the opposition, the ruling party seeks to resolve the conflict through the courts. On Tuesday, it could be decided whether to vote on Sunday the 17th, the only date available in December. From Riquelme's space they recognize that it will be difficult for the elections to be held this year.


Boca appealed today the precautionary measure of Judge Alejandra Abrevaya, who momentarily suspended the elections scheduled for Sunday 3 due to alleged irregularities in the electoral registry, product of the entry of 13,664 active members after the complaint of the opposition led by candidate Andrés Ibarra.

With the appeal filed by the Boquense legal department, now the National Court of Appeals in Civil Matters, in the second instance, will have three working days to determine if they will hold the elections this year.

In this way, according to sources from the Xeneize, the Justice will have until next Tuesday to give a hearing to the brief presented by the ruling party.

The last possible date for the electoral act is December 17, since a week before the President of the Nation, Javier Milei, will take office, and later it will be the days of Christmas Eve and New Year's Day, so it would be impossible.

"Most likely, this will end up happening next year," acknowledged one club official, with some annoyance.

The elections that were scheduled for next Sunday in Boca Juniors were suspended yesterday due to lack of agreement between the parties after the meeting between the ruling party and the opposition in the Justice.

With no estimated date yet for the elections, Jorge Ameal could continue as president of the Ribera club until new elections are arranged.

On behalf of the ruling party, the meeting was attended by Ricardo Rosica, secretary of the club; and Walter Krieger, Boca's legal advisor, while Javier Medín, legal representative; and Sebastián Silvestri.

The conciliation hearing began after noon and around 16 p.m. they determined that they will seek a new election date in the face of total disagreement from both parties.

The opposition, with candidate Andrés Ibarra, accompanied by former president of Boca y la Nación, Mauricio Macri, objected to the presence of 13,664 new active members, and civil judge Abrevaya granted the complaint last Tuesday.

The opposition's proposal was to hold the elections without these new active members, while the ruling party pointed out that 4,189 became active during the previous administration of Daniel Angelici. Boca will appeal the judge's ruling to the respective Chamber and wait for a new resolution.

In addition, the ruling party relied on the club's Statute and even offered that the objected members vote at another table, and in the event that those members are decisive with their votes, justice intervenes, although this was not accepted by the opposition either.

Consequently, the elections that were to take place in La Bombonera this Sunday cannot be carried out.

In addition, the fans began a call for Sunday, at 16:00 p.m., in support of Juan Román Riquelme, the candidate for president for the ruling party.

And for their part, the leaders are evaluating opening the doors of La Bombonera for four hours on Sunday for those members who have contracted the respective trips and thus can live a pleasant day after the momentary suspension of the elections.
