The executive directors of the member channels of the National Television Association (Anatel) held elections this Friday to choose the new board of directors of the entity. The ex-deputy Paul Vidal was elected.
The former member of the Democratic Revolution (RD) will hold office for two years, starting on Monday, May 2. The rest of the next board of directors will be made up of Enrique Aimone Garcia (first vice president), Javier Villanueva Barzelatto (Second Vice President) and Diego Karich Balcells (general secretary).
Vidal will replace Ernesto Corona, who has held the presidency of Anatel since 2011.
“We thank Ernesto Corona and his board for all the work done, and we wish the board that Pablo Vidal will command the greatest success,” Anatel said.
Vidal is a geographer graduated from the Pontifical Catholic University of Chile. Between 2018 and 2022 he was a deputy. In December 2020 he resigned from the DR, together with the then deputy Natalie Castilloafter the rapprochement of the Broad Front with Chile Digno (PC-FRVS), in what would later become Approve Dignidad, the ruling coalition.
