Elections
Many elections, organized by the Nominations Commitee, take place during the General Conference:
  • election of the General Commitee of the General Conference, which takes place, on the proposal of the Executive Board, at the beginning of the Plenary;

  • election of the Members of the Executive Board, which takes place in accordance with the distribution of Members States by electoral group (Group I: 9 seats, Group II: 7 seats, Group III: 10 seats, Group IV: 12 seats, Group V: 20 seats); candidacies must be communicated to the General Conference at least six weeks before the session and in any event at least 48 hours before the election;

  • elections of the bureaux of the commission and commitees of the General Conference;

  • elections of the intergovernemental commitees and councils associated with UNESCO's programme. Information concerning the elections carried out by the General Conference at each ordinary session together with the results of the elections held at the previous session are to be found in About/Elections.
The timetable of work and the journal of the General Conference give the dates of the elections. For the election of the Members of the Executive Board, a voting bureau is set up in Room V on the days of the election; delegates may vote there at their convenience without any break in the discussions (see document 32 C/2, available in June/July 2003). The results of the elections that will take place during the 32nd session of the General Conference will be available immediately following the end of its proceedings (December 2003). - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
