Cesar Montano said he will not resign from his position as president of the Andean University Simon Bolivar (UASB), although his appointment was unknown by the Higher Education Council (CES) last Friday.
The CES argued that, according to the Organic Law on Higher Education (LOES), only presidents who have obtained their doctoral degrees in different educational institutions to which they intend to lead can perform their duties.
The scholar pointed out that the Superior Council of the University, he considers legitimate (which is chaired by Ruben Velez), will meet to resolve the request to review the election made by Foreign Minister Ricardo Patino.
The official gave the UASB a term of fifteen days.
Internally, the University holds meetings to resolve whether it will take legal action, said the president.
