The post-Rubiales RFEF begins to organize its plans. Sources from the federation have ruled out that a motion of censure will be presented against Luis Rubiales and they also reject that early elections can be held before 2024.
Under the interim mandate of Pedro Rocha since FIFA suspended Rubiales, the highest echelon of Spanish football clings to what is established in the ministerial order that regulates electoral processes in Spanish sports federations, as reported by EFE. Specifically, article 19 regarding the motion of censure, regardless of its statutes.
According to it, the presentation of the motion must comply with the following criteria: “it cannot be presented during the first six months of the mandate, nor when between six months and one year remain until the date from which the call for elections can be made.” elections, a circumstance to be determined by federative regulations”.
The RFEF, due to its participation in the 2024 Paris Olympic Games, for which the men’s team has already qualified and the women’s team has yet to play to do so, should call its next elections once the Games are over, which will be held from 26 July to August 11 of next year.
The mandate of Luis Rubiales, suspended by FIFA for 90 days since the 26th for his behavior in the final of the Women’s World Cup in which Spain won the title, would end next September, since he was elected for the second time on the 21st of September 2020 by the General Assembly without opposition with a total of 95 votes in favor and 10 abstentions, concludes EFE.
