Today, 89 of the 124 member states of the CFS voted on the amended rules of procedures. 88 voted in favour, 1 voted against.
Rules were adopted. This means one item is off Saturday’s agenda!

The biggest issue on the new Rules is that the Chairperson can be elected for a period of two years on a rotational basis of individual qualifications and can only hold the term two times (total of four years).
