Summary

The Tenth Protocol aims at improving the Convention's supervision procedures. It changes the rule on the majority required when the Committee of Ministers is called upon to vote on whether the Convention has been violated in cases not referred to the European Court of Human Rights.

It replaces the two-thirds majority provided for in Article 32 of the Convention by a simple majority of member States.

When the new Protocol enters into force, the Committee of Ministers will take decisions relating to its judicial functions under Article 32 of the Convention by simple majority.
