———————————————

Action – Item proposed for adoption without debate

To adopt the draft decision below.

1. At their 1077th meeting (24 February 2010), the Deputies considered the follow-up to be given to Parliamentary Assembly Recommendation 1893 (2009) on “The future of the European Centre for Global Interdependence and Solidarity (“North-South Centre”)”, in particular regarding the possible revision of the Statutory Resolution of the North-South Centre on the basis of the elements outlined in Recommendation 1893 (2009).

2. On this occasion, the Deputies, in their composition restricted to members of the Partial Agreement of the European Centre for Global Interdependence and Solidarity (“North-South Centre”), noted “that a possible adoption of a new statutory resolution for the North-South Centre would have implications on the composition and the setting up of the Executive Council” and therefore decided “to prolong, on an exceptional basis, the mandate of the present Executive Council for a further year until 31 March 2011, so as to allow time for the Committee of Ministers to adopt a final position on the proposal made by the Parliamentary Assembly in its Recommendation 1893 (2009).”

3. As work on the preparation of a new statutory resolution is not completely finalised and in order to avoid any interruption in the functioning of the statutory bodies of the North South-Centre, the Deputies, in their composition restricted to members of the North-South Centre2, are invited to prolong the mandate of the present Executive Council until 31 May 2011.

Financing assured: YES

Decision

The Deputies, in their composition restricted to members of the Partial Agreement of the European Centre for Global Interdependence and Solidarity (“North-South Centre”),3 taking account of the ongoing work for the preparation of a new statutory resolution for the North-South Centre and of the implications this would have on the composition and the setting up of the Executive Council, decided to prolong for an additional period of two months the mandate of the present Executive Council, which will therefore expire on 31 May 2011.
