The chief of cabinet recently proposed a new candidate for the position of director of the Agency for Access to Public Information, which is the supervisory authority of the Personal Data Protection Law, the Do Not Call Law and the Access to Public Information Law.

The appointment of a new director has been pending since the beginning of 2021. On 19 October 2020, the former agency's director resigned from the position as of 1 January 2021. Consequently, the chief of cabinet proposed a previous candidate to cover the role. However, the nomination has been withdrawn after a public hearing in which several objections and comments to the proposal were discussed.

Now, through Resolution 18/2022, the chief of cabinet has proposed Beatriz de Anchorena for this position. A public hearing to discuss potential objections and comments regarding the nomination will take place on 25 February 2022. The executive branch will then decide whether to confirm or withdraw the nomination.

The full text of the resolution is available at here.
