ICAPP Update (12-33)


Dear Members of the ICAPP Standing Committee,


Hon. Jose de Venecia, Founding Chairman and Co-Chairman of the Standing Committee, and I recently visited Mexico as a part of the international monitoring group of the Mexican presidential election held on July 1 at the invitation of the COPPPAL.


During this visit, we had a meeting with Hon. Gustavo Caravajal Moreno, Deputy President of the COPPPAL, and Ms. Dolores Gandulfo, Chief of Staff for the President of the COPPPAL, and agreed to launch the ICAPP-COPPPAL Economic Council and hold its first meeting on the sidelines of the 3rd Joint Session between the ICAPP Standing Committee and the COPPPAL Coordinating Body to be held in Montevideo, Uruguay during September 6-8, 2012. 


Mr. Caravajal and Ms. Gandulfo also mentioned that the COPPPAL plans to invite representatives of major political parties in Africa and to hold the first trilateral meeting among political parties in Asia, Africa and Latin America.


In this regard, SC Members are requested to confirm their participation in the 3rd joint session and to nominate two candidates, one member plus one alternate, for the economic council at their earliest convenience. The list of the SC Members who have indicated their willingness to attend the session during the 17th SC Meeting and the list of candidates who have been so far nominated for the council are attached herewith.


SC Members may also recall that they agreed to consider sending an ICAPP Mission to the U.N. on their way to, or from, Montevideo to meet with Hon. Ban Ki-moon, U.N. Secretary General, and request his support for the ICAPP activities and the ICAPP's bid for U.N. observer status.  It is, however, with regret to inform you that, according to the office of Secretary General Ban, he will not be in New York during either September 4-5 or September 10-11.


With warm regards,


Chung Eui-yong

Co-Chairman of the Standing Committee

and Secretary General of the ICAPP

Seoul, Korea


July 10, 2012
