GEORGIA’S CANDIDATE GETS ELECTED DESPITE OF DAMAGING ALLEGATIONS BY A SMALL SECTION OF THE TRAVEL MEDIA
(Posted 13th May 2017)
The 105th session of the UNWTO Executive Council, meeting in Madrid, Spain, on 12 May 2017, recommended Zurab Pololikashvili, Ambassador of Georgia in Spain, as a nominee for the post of Secretary-General for the four-year-period starting January 2018.
The candidature of Zurab Pololikashvili was presented by his country, Georgia, in accordance with the UNWTO statutes.
The recommendation of the UNWTO Executive Council will be submitted to the upcoming 22nd UNWTO General Assembly for ratification (11th to 16th of September 2017 in Chengdu, China).
Damaging allegations made by eTurboNews Publisher Steinmetz did not have the desired effect as the Executive Committee in round two of the voting for a new UNWTO Secretary General nevertheless voted for him.
Congratulations to the UNWTO Secretary General Elect.
