Elections in Boca: the two models that confront each other as a mirror of the national elections

2023-12-16T09:20:30.806Z

Highlights: Boca Juniors will hold elections on December 17. The election will be for a new board of directors. The current board is made up of seven members. The vote will be held in front of a crowd of 2,000 people. The winner will be announced on December 18. The result will be published in a book called "The New Boca" The book will also be published as a book, "The Next Boca", in 2015. The book is published by Simon & Schuster, a division of V&A.


In the ruling party headed by Riquelme there are representatives of K and radicalism. The opposition led by Ibarra and Macri has people linked to La Libertad Avanza and the PRO.


Two models will be defined at the Xeneiz polls. Almost in line with the electoral fight that took place at the national level, the candidates and proposals have a well-marked stamp. Juan Román Riquelme, the popular idol, will face Andrés Ibarra, a businessman who was not only secretary of the club; He was also Minister of Modernization during the administration of Mauricio Macri, who is not coincidentally his running mate. And if in Unidos por Boca – the opposition list – there are people linked to the PRO and even to La Libertad Avanza (Javier Milei's party), in the ruling party there are representatives of Kirchnerism and radicalism.

What is the platform of both?

The 10 proposals of the 10, a play on words that has to do with the number of the shirt that highlighted Román, seeks to replace the Soy Socio APP; it targets Sports Corporations and "politics"; promotes the creation of a sports centre for amateur sports, a gastronomic centre in La Bombonera and an exclusive space for life residents; continue to transform the Ezeiza property; reinforcements of international level and continue "raising kids to the First Division", in addition to the draw of 10 trips per game.

Nothing is said about La Bombonera, Ibarra's workhorse, which proposes a Siglo XXI stadium on the grounds of Casa Amarilla with international financing and a capacity for 107,10 spectators. Among the most salient points is the idea of allowing lifers to enter the court without any filter. "No hand-picking," they explain. And that after <> years as an adherent, no member in that condition has to continue paying the fee. Also, that the age of the assets be enforced.

In the head-to-head between the coaches, the difference is in the origin of each coach. Although Diego Martinez had a stint in Boca's youth ranks, he is not a man of the club's kidney like Martin Palermo. Roman opted for a coach he has been talking to even before opting for Jorge Almiron. After trying people from the house such as Miguel Angel Russo, Sebastián Battaglia and Hugo Ibarra, he opted for a strategist from outside the institution. Ibarra, on the other hand, chose an idol, the top scorer in the history of blue and gold. The Titan has been working for a decade and is facing the great opportunity of his career: on Saturday in Santiago del Estero, his Platense will define the League Cup against Rosario Central.

And when it comes to football references, on both sides are divided those former footballers who in their active times gave glory to Boca. The Football Council includes Marcelo Delgado, Raúl Cascini, Jorge Bermúdez and Mauricio Serna. Carlos Bianchi would join as an advisor, honorary president or "whatever the Viceroy wants," they said close to Riquelme. Diego Cagna, Rolando Schiavi and Roberto Abbondanzieri support the opposition list. And Guillermo Barros Schelotto could be the manager.

As for the formation of the squad, so far the only one who showed the cards was Riquelme. He did not do so publicly, but Arturo Vidal, Ever Banega and Rubén Botta are known to be on the docket. Ibarra spoke of quality signings, but until the elections are resolved, he will not let go.

That's how Boca is, between Riquelme and Ibarra, between two antagonistic spaces that dispute much more than a football club.

Everything you need to know about the elections in Boca

Boca's partner is counting down to a new election day. On December 17, there will be presidential elections at the club. After the Court of Appeals revoked the precautionary measure of Judge Alejandra Abrevaya, who had ordered the suspension of the elections scheduled for December 3, this Sunday will be the day that marks the beginning of the next four years of the La Ribera club.

However, late on Friday, it was still unclear what Sunday's procedure will look like. The opposition presented a new request to the judge, who granted it and the 13,364 members observed should vote at separate tables. But the House can again overturn the ruling.

This is how, two weeks after the schedule, the moment arrived when, from 9 a.m. to 18 p.m., La Bombonera will open its doors to receive the 98,000 members registered in the register.

Who is eligible to vote in elections in Boca

The following categories will be included in the registry: Active (over 18 years of age), Lifetime (over 30 years of age), Domestic (over 18 years of age but residing more than 100km away) and Exterior (of legal age living abroad)

In addition, in order to exercise their right as a member, they must have the November fee up to date and carry a valid card, as well as their ID card.

What happens if my license expires?

In that case, there is no problem. As long as each member appears on the register, the expiry of the card is rejected and will allow all members to participate equally in the elections.
