The president of the Port Authority of the Balearic Islands (APB), Francesc Antich, today formally asked the president of the Autonomous Community of the Balearic Islands, Francina Armengol, to accept his resignation from the post due to health issues that prevent him from continuing with his commitment at the head of the port authority, and to pass this request on to the Governing Council.
Francesc Antich submitted his resignation this morning through the registry of the autonomous administration, which will come into effect at the end of November.
Francesc Antich Oliver was appointed president of the APB on 26 September 2020 by a ministerial order published in the Official State Gazette, following his appointment to the post by the Governing Council of the Autonomous Community of the Balearic Islands.
Antich has been President of the Government of the Balearic Islands in two legislatures (1999-2003 and 2007-2011). From 2011 to 2019 he was a Spanish senator appointed by the Parliament of the Balearic Islands and in 2019 commissioner of the Government of the Balearic Islands in Madrid. Before becoming president of the APB, he was an attorney for the Municipal Housing and Neighbourhood Rehabilitation Board of the Palma City Council.
