Still no substitute for head of general health directorate

The shambolic process to choose a new head of Portugal’s once highly-revered general health directorate has seemingly stalled, and is going back to first base. The news, coming today, has been unable to explain the reason for this latest hitch that follows a fairly long line of hitches. It has been said that the government is essentially setting out to dismantle the entity which still has a woman at the top (rarely seen in public now) who resigned in December last year.
