Elections to replace five members of the Committee whose terms expire on 30 June 2015 will be held during the third meeting of states parties to the International Convention for the Protection of All Persons from Enforced Disappearance.
Members are elected for a term of four years by States parties from among their nationals, consideration being given to equitable geographical distribution, relevant legal experience and balanced gender representation. Members serve in their personal capacity and not as representatives of the States parties which present their candidature. They may be re-elected once if re-nominated.
