July 2017: AFP's independence at the heart of an internal election

In the election to appoint three staff representatives to the AFP board of governors, an "SOS-AFP" list garnered 18.45% of votes among journalists, and 16.19% among administrative and technical staff.

The election, the only one that is open to all staff worldwide irrespective of their work status, was marred by very low turnout.
The three outgoing staff representatives were all re-elected.
