At its fifty-first session (Geneva, 3 February 2011) the TIR Administrative Committee (AC.2) elected nine (9) members of the TIR Executive Board (TIRExB) for the term of office 2011–2012. However, one TIRExB member (Mr. V. Luhovets from Ukraine) informed the TIR Secretary on 28 November 2011 that he can no longer continue his functions as a TIRExB member. In accordance with the Rules of Procedure of TIRExB, in case a member of the TIRExB resigns before the completion of his/her mandated term of office, a replacement member shall be elected by AC.2 as soon as possible. The replacement member shall only hold office for the remainder of the term of office of the current TIRExB composition (viz. until the next elections in February 2013). In line with the mandate given by AC.2 at its fifty-second session (Geneva, 6 October 2011), the UNECE secretariat is soliciting herewith candidates willing to stand for election for one vacant seat in the TIRExB. The election will take place on Thursday, 9 February 2012, in the course of the fifty-third session of AC.2, in accordance with the established procedure (TRANS/WP.30/AC.2/59, paras. 24-27).
