Together with Moyano he will also leave Hector “Yoyo” Maldonadothe current secretary general and one of the people with the greatest influence on decision-making within the institution in recent years.

The current president of the Red confirmed in a meeting with other members of the Board of Directors that he will not head or be part of the official list in the next elections. This was reported by the journalist Gastón Edul, who follows the day to day of the club.

At the moment it is unknown who will be the presidential candidate who will lead the current leadership. The truth is that the “Independent Association” list will present itself and compete against the two opposing lists.

End of an eight-year cycle

Hugo Moyano assumed his first term at the helm of Rojo in July 2014 after winning the elections with almost 70% of the vote. The club had just achieved promotion to the First Division after a series of years of institutional and sports debacle.

The union leader renewed his mandate in December 2017. In those elections he swept and obtained 89% of the votes.
