CFK appoints Sabatella as new AFSCA head
During an event at the House of Government today President Critina Fernández de Kirchner sworn Deputy Martín Sabatella as the head the AFSCA media watchdog that is in charge of enacting the Media Law.
The leftwing lawmaker and former mayor of Morón, clinched the position after going through a routine screening process.
Sabbatella is not a media expert but very much a politician. Morón is a district in Western Greater Buenos Aires that was once a Peronist bastion. But Sabbatella, who is not a Peronist but a former leader of the centre-left coalition FREPASO, was elected mayor of Morón in 1999 vowing to clamp down on corruption.
Time after, he left the coalition to join the Kirchnerite ranks.
