The Management Board elects the Director-General and members of the Program Council, who are proposed by the National Assembly’s Committee for Culture and Information. Recent elections of the Board Members raised controversy in January 2016, when all six Members of the Council of Regulators voted for the same nine candidates out of 52 possible candidates. the chosen candidates were individuals considered close to the ruling party. The Independent Association of Journalists in Serbia and Vojvodina requested information on the criteria through which the nine candidates were selected, but their request was ignored.
