Suite of documents 269/04

Since the Secretariat has received two nominations for the Vice Presidency of the CSO (docs. COST 250/04 and COST 266/04), an election will be necessary at the 159th CSO meeting on 29- 28 May 2004 in Bergen, Norway.

In this respect, it is recalled that doc. COST 245/04 ­ Working Methods of the CSO ­ stipulates in Article 3 that a majority of all COST Member States is required.

The non-associated Member having no voting rights on this issue, the simple majority is 18.

At present 24 delegations have registered their attendance at the Bergen meeting.

Based on previous experience ­ see doc. COST 263/1/01 REV 1, in particular the last indent, of which a copy is attached to this note ­ the Secretariat suggests that delegations who are unable to attend the 159th meeting should be allowed to cast their votes in writing to the Secretariat by mid- day on Monday, 24 May at the latest.
