Núñez Feijóo became president in April 2009 following the regional parliamentary elections held in Galicia the previous month.

He was officially named President of the Xunta by Royal Decree (Real Decreto 630/2009), issued by King Juan Carlos I, on 17 April 2009.[2]

In 2013 he became the subject of a scandal when pictures emerged of him holidaying in the 90s with Marcial Dorado, a Galician drug dealer.[3][4] Nuñez Feijóo claims having severed all links with Dorado after learning of his drug crimes.[5]
