Nominations for the Presidency by Professional Institutions

1. Using existing mechanisms, every institution, requiring a minimum qualification of a university degree, selects five representatives to represent its members at a national conference to nominate a presidential candidate. (Proportional representation methods can be used!)
2. During this election process, presidential candidate lists can be put forward to form a nucleus for lobbying and campaigning.
3. At the end of this process, every institution will have 5 members to represent it. These representatives meet and choose one of them to attend a preparatory meeting.
4. These people meet to arrange for the national meeting: time, venue, procedures, required committees, etc.
5. The general meeting is held and attended by all representatives of all institutions. Various lists of potential candidates are discussed with the aim of producing a short-list.
6. Delegates are given a chance to go back to their institutions to discuss the short list with members.
7. Committees can be formed to approach the potential candidates in the short list and arrange for them to meet the delegates.
8. The meeting then attempts through successive voting to reach, by a process of elimination, a consensus or agreement on a single candidate.
9. The final nomination is submitted to the National Assembly.
