      • the president or chairman of the external public finance audit institution of the region where the last ordinary session of the General Assembly was held; he shall be both president of EURORAI and chairman of the Management Committee;

      • the president or chairman of the regional external public finance audit institution where the next ordinary session of the General Assembly is to be held; he shall be the vice-chairman of the Management Committee;

      • the secretary general of EURORAI.

    2. Four members from amongst the presidents and chairmen of the other regional external public finance audit institutions members of EURORAI elected by the General Assembly for a period of three years.

      So as to guarantee a balanced representation of all member states, the election of these four members should be effected in such a way that the main types of public sector audit applied by the member institutions and the number of member institutions within a member state are taken into account.

      If there are more candidates than posts, the voting at the election shall be done in secret.

      If, at the end of the first round of voting, any of the four leading candidates has not obtained an absolute majority of the votes cast by those members represented at the General Assembly, a second round of voting shall take place, after which the four candidates who have obtained the largest numbers of votes shall be declared elected.

      No member state may have more than one member within the Management Committee, whereupon the Secretary General is not considered as national subject to this respect.

    3. The representatives shall be appointed in the capacity of substitutes on final basis in the event of a Management Committee member retiring definitely during the term of the Management Committee with the exception of the president, who is replaced by his successor in the presidency of the institution which organized the last congress or by the vice-chairman of EURORAI according to the decision of the Management Committee.
