ANDlAthletic seeks president. And in a few hours you can have your first candidate.Alberto Uribe-Echevarra, accountant of the extinct Board of Directors of Josu Urrutia (the club is now governed by a Management Commission)announce before the match against Levante if he is in a position to leada continuist plate.

The definitive teamit is even profiled in communication with members of groups of partners who had consideredto take forward a candidacy and that they have held more than one meeting in this regard.

The achievement of at least 5% of the signatures of the partners with the right to vote is a remit that has been maturing for several days from different instances.
If Uribe-Echevarra takes the step and next August 12 is the only candidate for president will take office the next day without having to go through the polls. InIf there is no candidate, the management commission will extend its mandatefor no more than six months with the sole objective of calling new elections.
