The director of the state–owned Panamanian Institute of Sports (Pandeportes), Roberto Arango, resigned his post and on Tuesday, Mario Pérez, who was the deputy director of the entity, was appointed in his place.
Arango, who had been at the helm of the sport governing body in Panama for three years, resigned for personal reasons, the central government said in a statement.
The Panamanian president, Juan Carlos Varela, thanked Arango for the valuable contribution to his administration, according to the official source.
“The goals proposed in the Government’s Sports Plan have been met in the vast majority. We know that there is a way to go, but the dynamism and mystique that you inspired in the work team of the Panamanian Sports Institute will remain”, expressed the Panamanian President on Arango.
