Election Date Dispute Preventing Argentina's Independiente From Reaching Agreement
Argentine second division side Independiente's "negotiations with the opposition are constant," according to Nahuel Lanzillota of CLARIN. The arrangement, "however, could fall through because both parties are insisting on imposing their own election dates." The differences between Independiente President Javier Cantero and the Independent Group (AI), as well as other "businessmen offering to help with the club's finances," are widening. AI spokesperson Hector Maldonado said that "if the agreement is not sealed today, it will not happen." Others said that "we do not know how to continue." The "key difference is the election date." Cantero and the club "want it in August and the AI wants it held in July" (CLARIN, 4/1).
