Any member wishing to put forward his/her candidature as President or Vice-President can inform the Secretariat before 13 November 2013, 12.00.

Possible election of one member of the CCJE Bureau

According to the Resolution Res(2011)24, Bureau members are elected for a two year period, renewable once. As Ms Nina BETETTO and Mr Richard AIKENS were elected for the first time in 2013, they are not automatically subject to new elections.

Any member wishing to put forward his/her candidature within this framework can inform the Secretariat before 13 November 2013, 12.00.

The members of the Bureau of the CCJE will also attend the CCJE-GT meetings.

There is no automatic re-appointment of a member of the Working Group from one year to the next year.

Any member of the CCJE who would like to be a member of the Working Group for 2014 should inform the Secretariat before 15 November 2013, 10.00.

According to the Resolution Res(2011)24 (“Where necessary, in order to expedite the progress of their work, committees may entrust a rapporteur with a specific task to be fulfilled by their next meeting”), the CCJE can decide to appoint a Gender Equality Rapporteur for 2014.
