Group of Experts on Stable Procedures for elections

Group of Experts on Stable Procedures for the Election of 
Member States to the Council, Elected Officials and
Members of the Radio Regulations Board

In pursuance of Resolution 78 (Minneapolis, 1998) on stable election procedures, the Council decided at its June 2001 session to set up a Group of Experts under the chairmanship of Germany. The German Administration appointed Mr. Peter Voss to chair the group.

The group is specifically entrusted with the task of preparing a proposal for the procedures for the election of Member States to the Council, elected officials and members of the Radio Regulations Board, to be submitted to the Council for its consideration at the 2002 session. For further information on the subject, please refer to Council Documents C2001/51(Rev.1) and C2001/127.

In addition, the group will also have to take into consideration in its work the terms of Recommendation 24  of the Working Group on Reform, under which the deadline for presenting candidates would be two weeks before the start of the Plenipotentiary Conference.

The Group of Experts, which will be open to participation by all Member States, will conduct its work by electronic means, as decided by the Council. For further information see Information Circular-letter No. 141

In order to facilitate the work of the Group and achieve maximum efficiency, it was provided with a first draft of the election procedures prepared by the Chairman of the group in collaboration with the Legal Affairs Unit of the ITU General Secretariat.

Pursuant to its work and as mentioned in CL No. 141 of 25 September 2001, the provisional report of the Group was submitted to Member States for comments and was duly revised by the Group in light of comments received, particularly with regard to text appearing in square brackets.

The report of the Group has now been finalized and will be submitted to Council 2002 for consideration.
