İngilizce (ABD) hakkında soru

I'm confused in regard to the explanation below. Could anyone help me??

"We can use'could have been' to talk about possible present situations that have not happened. (Possible in Present)

eg:He could have been Prime Minister now but he got involved in a big financial scandal."
The question is, Does this sentence refer to the past or present?
Does he still have a chance to become Prime Minister? or He didn't become Prime Minister because of the scandal?
