The Selection Process
As part of a more open, transparent and inclusive selection and appointment process, the President of the General Assembly (PGA) is organizing informal dialogues between UN Member States and SG candidates starting in April 2016. The Office of the PGA has requested UN Non-Governmental Liaison Service (UN-NGLS) to facilitate a process with civil society to provide questions that can be asked to candidates during these dialogues. More details at http://www.unngls.world/
UN-NGLS is therefore facilitating a call for questions from civil society that can be asked of UN Secretary-General candidates during UN General Assembly dialogues with the candidates that will begin in April 2016. (See below for ways to submit your questions).
Civil society is invited to contribute questions via Twitter or Instagram using #UNSGcandidates, or send them in via an online form. During the dialogues, questions can be presented in person, via video or audio recording, or read aloud by the President of the General Assembly.
UN-NGLS will also convene a civil society Committee through an application process to review all questions submitted and create a short-list of 30 questions for the Office of the President of the General Assembly to select from for inclusion in the General Assembly dialogues.
