Information regarding the Composition, Agenda and Voting Procedure for today's Extraordinary General Assembly.

Composition

The FIA Extraordinary General Assembly (EGA) will be composed of the representatives (Delegates) of FIA Member Clubs, Associations or Federations. If in one country the FIA has several Member Clubs, these may be represented by the same Delegate. Any Member Club unable to send a Delegate may be represented by another Club. However, no Club is allowed to accept more than one proxy. Votes by correspondence are not accepted. The FIA President can invite to the EGA any person who may bring useful assistance to the meeting.

Agenda

The EGA will take place from 1000 hrs in the Salle de Conference of the Automobile Club de France. An exchange of views of the membership will then take place. This will be followed by a vote of confidence in the FIA President.

Votes

Votes can be cast only by Full Members with completed annual registrations. At the EGA, votes are expected to be cast by 140 clubs from 96 countries. They will represent a total of 177 votes (including 19 proxies). Clubs with competence in Sporting as well Mobility matters have two votes each (Article 3.1). There is only one Sporting Club from each country. A country can have more than one Mobility Club, in which case these will have to agree on the vote to be returned. Should they fail to agree or reach a majority decision, a blank vote will be cast (Article 3.2). The outcome is decided by an absolute majority of the total number of votes. An absolute majority is made up of at least half plus one of the votes which could be cast at the General Assembly.

Voting Procedure

Each delegate will be called in front of the EGA to put a sealed envelope containing their vote(s) into the ballot box. The envelope will contain their ballot paper(s) with their choice for or against the motion of confidence in the FIA President. The votes will be counted in private by the FIA legal department, in the presence of four scrutineers, selected by the EGA from a list of Delegates proposed by the Chairman of the meeting (in this case the President of the FIA Senate). The number and share of votes cast will be announced at the end of the meeting.
