    - agreed to consult the Parliamentary Assembly through the Joint Committee in April 2002 and

    - agreed to resume consideration of this item at one of their meetings in May 2002, with a view to adopting a Resolution containing the names of the candidates to be forwarded to the Assembly in accordance with Article 5 of the Procedure for appointments to the post of Deputy Secretary General.

    The consultation through the Joint Committee having taken place on 25 April 2002 (in accordance with Article 4 of the Procedure), it remains for the Deputies to adopt the Resolution referred to above. Article 5 of the Procedure provides that the Committee of Ministers shall be free to list the names in order of preference should it so desires.
