The responsibility for the management and the legal and the extrajudicial representation lies with the President. He is in charge of day-to-day operations of the BLM and acts as its external re presentative. The President is elected by the Media Council for a term of five years.
Together with the Managing Director as his deputy, he executes the decisions taken by the Media Council and the Administrative Council and issues orders in matters of great urgency. He also takes account of for personnel matters and represents the BLM in public.
