Civil society: Propose questions for UN Secretary-General Candidates
The President of the General Assembly (PGA) is organizing informal dialogues between UN Member States and candidates for UN Secretary-General. The Office of the PGA requested UN-NGLS to facilitate a process with civil society to provide questions that can be asked to candidates during these dialogues. The first round of dialogues with 9 candidates took place 12-14 April 2016. The second round of dialogues will take place with new candidates on 7 June. Civil society is invited to contribute questions via Twitter or Instagram using #UNSGcandidates, or send them via an online form here. Questions submitted by 25 May were considered for the 7 June dialogues at UN Headquarters.
