Should it be past tense or present tense, if referring to a previously "current" situation


Should it be, "It was highlighted that currently, there is no Managing Director on the Board." or, "It was highlighted that currently, there was no Managing Director on the Board.

I would like to mention that, based on your definition of the circumstance, this is a perfect time to learn the "past-perfect" tense.


"had been highlighted"  (completed past action)

"that there has been no..." (past action ongoing into present)
