On behalf of EC members, I am pleased to inform you the result of HIC presidential election process that took place between June, 12th – October, 26th.
According to the information provided by the General Secretariat, 51 members had the right to vote for the 2015 Election of the HIC President.
We received a total of 24 votes, from which 23 were valid: an organization voted for a person that was not stated as Candidate. As such, this vote is considered invalid.
The final results are:
23 votes in favor of Lorena Zárate
1 invalid vote
No blank vote
The votes’ breakdown by region is the following: Africa: 2, Asia: 1, Europe: 1, Latin America/Caribbean: 15, Middle East/North Africa: 3, North America/Canada: 2
The total of 24 votes represents the participation of 47% of the eligible voting members and meets the quorum of 10% of the roster of voters.
We certify the validity of this electoral process, as described in the HIC By-Law.
According to these results, Mrs. Lorena Zárate is the HIC President
for the 2015-2019 mandate.
We thank HIC members for their participation and congratulate our HIC President!
