The government appointed Armando Barria Oyarzun as the new provincial presidential delegate of Chiloé. As reported by the Ministry of the Interior this Thursday, Barría will take office on Friday, December 16.
The Executive appointed Barría one month after the resignation of the previous provincial delegate of Chiloé, Mariela Nunez. The government’s delay generated criticism from local authorities, such as the president of the Association of Municipalities of Chiloé, Javiera Yanez.
“Barría is a professor at the State of Plastic Arts, with postgraduate degrees in Administration and Educational Planning and Educational and Vocational Guidance, in addition to having a master’s degree in Educational Policy and Management,” the government said in a statement.
“He was deputy governor in Chiloé between 2015-2016, and served as a councilor in the Quinchao commune in two periods: 2008-2011 and 2016-2021,” they added from the Executive.
