The journalist Manuel Carvalho is to take over as editor of Público, one of Portugal’s leading daily newspapers, replacing David Dinis, who resigned earlier this week, according to a statement from the newspaper’s board.

“The administration of Público informs that it has asked Manuel Carvalho to exercise the role of editor of Público, and he has accepted the invitation that was extended to him,” the statement says.
The board of the newspaper, which is owned by Sonaecom, part of the Sonae group, adds that “the formation of the editorial team will be entirely his responsibility” - referring to Carvalho.
Dinis had resigned following the dismissal of his deputy, Diogo Queiroz de Andrade, a move that the board commented on in an earlier statement, which Lusa saw on Monday.

The board “decided, on Monday, and after a process of reflection over the last few weeks, to dispense with the services of Diogo Queiroz de Andrade, who had responsibility for the digital area and of Deputy Editor of the newspaper,” it said.
According to the latest statement, “in the wake of the statement made [on Monday] and previously discussed, the editor of Público, David Dinis, submitted his resignation.”
The other members of Público’s editorial board, Tiago Luz Pedro and Vítor Costa, also submitted their resignations.
The Público board is chaired by Ângelo Paupério, with the other members being Cláudia Azevedo and Cristina Soares.
