SCAR XXXV WP46: Proposed Revision of Presidential Voting Procedure

SCAR XXXV Delegates Meeting, Davos, Switzerland, 25-26 June 2018

SCAR XXXV WP46: Proposed Revision of Presidential Voting Procedure

Agenda Item: 11.3.

Person Responsible: Secretariat

 

Executive Summary 

Authors

Steven L Chown (Australia) and Terry Wilson (USA) 

Summary 

During the Meeting of Delegates in 2016, it was recommended that SCAR consider alternate voting strategies to elect the President, in order to ensure that an elected President had received a vote from a majority of Delegates. 

Here we propose a simple amendment of the presidential voting procedure to meet this objective, for consideration of the Delegates. 

Recommendations 

Delegates consider and approve proposed new language for Rules of Procedure for presidential voting. 

Summary Budget 2017 – 2020 

No budgetary implications.
