SPAIN – According to sources, the impending investigation by the Auditory Commission may have led to the Subdirector of Coproductions and festivals at TVE, Federico Llano to resign.
The reason given appears to be personal reasons but with TVE expected to release a statement regarding the National Final and the closeness of the chosen representative, Manel Navarro, with two of the jury members, it is very close timing if this has actually happened.
TVE have yet to officially confirm anything although it’s expected that a replacement in the name of Ana María Bordas has already been named. Whether this decision will lead to the resignation of the other Spanish Eurovision representative, Toñi Prieto, remains to be seen.
Meanwhile Spanish representative, Manel Navarro today confirmed his appearance at the London Eurovision Party on the 2nd April. This will be followed by the Amsterdam Eurovision party on 8th April, where Manel will continue to promote his song “Do it for your lover”.
