Following her victory, Morales shared the roadmap for the next two years and vowed the development of South American sport after the coronavirus pandemic, the Sports Secretariat said in a statement on Thursday.
Paraguay "will promote the creation of a regional observatory, the promotion of women in sports, the exchange of good practices in social, school and high-performance sports, and the coordination of national public policies towards regional integration, as well as the importance of Sport in the post-pandemic stage," it said.
Peru assumes the first vice-presidency and Colombia the second vice-presidency at the Board of Directors. The gathering was held virtually due to COVID-19 restrictions.
The Consude members include Argentina, Brazil, Bolivia, Colombia, Chile, Ecuador, Paraguay, Peru, Uruguay, and Venezuela.
