      Election of Assembly vice-presidents
      System for the attribution of seats in the Bureau for Vice-Presidents of the Assembly (Appendix to Resolution 1379 (2004), as modified by Resolution 2058 (2015))
      1. Member states are divided into four categories:
      — group I: delegations with eighteen seats in the Assembly (France, Germany, Italy, Russian Federation, Turkey, United Kingdom) will have six seats in the Bureau every ordinary session;
      — group II: delegations with between twelve and seventeen seats in the Assembly (Poland, Spain, Ukraine) will have two seats in the Bureau every ordinary session;
      — group III: delegations with between five and eleven seats in the Assembly (Austria, Azerbaijan, Belgium, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Bulgaria, Croatia, Czech Republic, Denmark, Finland, Georgia, Greece, Hungary, Republic of Moldova, Netherlands, Norway, Portugal, Romania, Serbia, Slovak Republic, Sweden, Switzerland) will have eight seats in the Bureau every ordinary session;
      — group IV: delegations with between two and four seats in the Assembly (Albania, Andorra, Armenia, Cyprus, Estonia, Iceland, Ireland, Latvia, Liechtenstein, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Malta, Monaco, Montenegro, San Marino, Slovenia, “the former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia”) will have four seats in the Bureau every ordinary session.
      2. Within these groups, seats in the Bureau are allocated for one ordinary session by following continuous English alphabetical order. Any new member state will be included in the relevant group and take its place according to English alphabetical order.
      As regards groups II, III and IV, the annual renewal will be partial in order to ensure a greater continuity in the composition of the Bureau. This renewal will take place annually:
      — for a third of the seats allocated to group II
      — for a half of the seats allocated to groups III and IV.
      N.B. The Chairpersons of the political groups or their representatives and the chairpersons of the Assembly general committees or their representatives are ex officio members of the Bureau of the Assembly.
