Italian solons tap RAI board

World brief

MILAN — After months of spats between Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi’s center-right government and Italy’s left-wing opposition, Parliament appointed most of the board members of pubcaster RAI on Tuesday.

However, RAI’s prexy and general director are still to be selected.

Of the seven board directors, four are elected by the government majority and three by the opposition parties.

The majority-backed directors are Giovanna Bianchi Clerici, Gennaro Malgieri, Marco Staderini and Giuliano Urbani. The opposition-backed ones are Nino Rizzo Nervo, Carlo Rognoni and Sandro Curzi.

The new board will be operational once a president is elected. Until then, the old board members, whose term expired on April 30, will continue running the network.
