The former president, running mate of Andrés Ibarra, released a video on his social networks as a closing of the campaign. He again questioned the management of the ruling party and asked for a new opportunityOn Sunday, voting takes place from 9 a.m. to 18 p.m. at the Bombonera.


We bosteros get used to winning, that's why we don't settle for a little bit. And we know that today the club is not at the height of our greatness. We call on you to regain lost glory." With that harangue, a painting by Arturo Frondizi and replicas of the Libertadores and Sudamericana cups as scenery, Mauricio Macri released a one-minute and seven-second video on his social networks on Thursday as a closing campaign for Boca's partners to accompany the formula he shares with Andrés Ibarra in the elections that, After too many judicial twists and turns, they will be held this Sunday at La Bombonera.

Macri, who was president of the club between 1995 and 2007, when he definitively launched himself into the arenas of national politics, tried to take advantage of the opportunity to add support in his crusade to unseat the ruling party headed by Juan Román Riquelme. "Years ago I called on Boca's partners to get Boca back on its feet. And together, we managed to live through the most winning era in our entire history," he began with his message

The former President of the Nation, today the main ally of Javier Milei's government, deepened his speech about the greatness of the club and that of its fans. For this reason, he took the opportunity to publicize once again the project that he is driving with his group, Unidos por Boca, for the construction of the Bombonera Siglo XXI. "Greatness obliges and demands Boca to be among the best clubs in the world, to have the largest, safest and most modern stadium in South America, so that more families can go to the field to see Boca."

Not only did he want to show a hopeful tone ahead of the elections, but he also used disappointment and concern to question Riquelme's management. He said that Boca needs "the latest technology to have the best relationship with its online partners as the main clubs in the world do" and that "it is necessary for it to be organized sportingly and institutionally to position itself as a model club."

He remarked that respect and teamwork will be protagonists but that "Boca is always above all of us" and that is why he warned, without naming names, that it is necessary to put together "a squad of hierarchy that puts Boca on top of the world again".

Voting time in Boca

The elections will finally be held this Sunday, December 17, after the Court of Appeals revoked the precautionary measure of Judge Alejandra Abrevaya, who had ordered the suspension of the elections scheduled for December 2. The winner will lead the La Ribera club for the next four years.

In these decisive days, likewise, the political moves of rejections and endorsements continue. Mario Pergolini, for example, posted a cryptic message: "I don't know... What do I know... Maybe a comfortable little lie... every four inconvenient truths. Something scary and not true, like, 'They're coming to intervene.' I do not know... Anyway," he launched on his Instagram profile, quoting a phrase in vogue by President Javier Milei about his preference for "an uncomfortable truth, rather than a comfortable lie."

For his part, Juan Román Riquelme received strong support from Claudio Tapia, the president of the AFA. They were together for about 30 minutes on Wednesday 13, as part of the final of the Women's League Cup, which Boca won against Belgrano de Córdoba. Chiqui Tapia asked him about the current situation of Boca, obviously the electoral process and also the future and the remodeling of the Bombonera in the same place where it is located.

Riquelme, meanwhile, asked Tapia about the national team, about the good performance that has been maintained after winning the World Cup and Messi. None of them let them miss a key issue that is on everyone's lips in these elections: sports corporations. Both Román and Tapia agreed that they should give the SAD the thumbs down.
