    Elections by the Parliamentary Assembly Retour au sommaire Atteindre l'élement suivant Atteindre l'élement précédent

      iv. - Modalities for the election procedure of judges to the European Court of Human Rights and the Council of Europe Commissioner for Human Rights

      Appendix to Resolution 1432 (2005)
      1. In principle, the list of candidates for the election of judges, once submitted to the Parliamentary Assembly, should not be modified. The Assembly shall only exceptionally accept partial or complete modification of the list on the initiative of the government concerned.
      2. The Assembly shall interrupt the procedure if one of the three candidates on a list for the post of judge or Commissioner for Human Rights withdraws before the first ballot. It shall ask the government concerned (in respect of judges) or the Committee of Ministers (in respect of the Commissioner) to complete the list of candidates.
      3. The Assembly confirms its practice of listing candidates for the post of judge in alphabetical order on the ballot paper. This shall also remain the practice in those cases where the government, disregarding the Assembly’s position as set out in Recommendations 1429 (1999) and 1649 (2004), has expressed a preference for one of the candidates. Any such expressions of governmental preference shall play no role in the deliberations of the Committee on the election of judges to the European Court of Human Rights where only the criteria provided for in the European Convention on Human Rights and those established by the Assembly itself shall be relevant.
      4. Furthermore, the Assembly confirms that the candidates for the post of Council of Europe Commissioner for Human Rights shall be listed in alphabetical order on the ballot paper.
