Since the regulations do not address the specific fact of a club sale, managers will need to decide on the interpretation in this case. In the Chairman’s understanding, approval is not for CD and it will be up to the General Meeting (AGE) to accept or reject the proposal.

Unlike the platform, which is proposed by the CD, here the person who is proposing is a third party, so I understand that the role of the CD is just to give an opinion to the partners. But this interpretation is still under discussion. The CD has to decide that there is no specific fact in the statute: whether it will be the last authority to refuse or whether to make a recommendation to approve or not from the AGE – explained Carlos Fonseca.
