“None of the three candidates were elected today as the new Council of Europe Commissioner for Human Rights, as reported in Strasbourg. The French candidate Pierre-Yves Le Borgn (105) received the most votes, followed by Dunja Mijatović (76) and (Slovenian) Justice Minister Goran Klemenčič (67). There will be a new round of voting on Wednesday.

Since none of the candidates in the secret ballot of the members of the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe (PS SE) today received the necessary absolute majority of votes, the second round of voting will take place on Wednesday. At that point, a simple majority of votes will be required for the election. The results should be known between 6pm and 7pm.” (translated from Sio1)
