Bureau of the CSTD

The CSTD Bureau is composed of a Chair and four Vice-Chairs.

A bureau is elected at each regular session.

The Commission elected, through silence procedure in accordance with Economic and Social Council decision 2021/213 of 24 February 2021, the following members of the Bureau for its twenty-fifth session:


  • Ana Cristina Amoroso das Neves (Portugal)
  • Muhammadou M.O. Kah (Gambia)
  • Peter Major (Hungary)

The Commission postponed the election of the Chair and remaining Vice-Chair on the understanding that upon the endorsement by the regional groups to serve on the Bureau, the endorsed Members of the Commission would be allowed to participate fully in the Bureau meetings in preparation for the Commission’s twenty-fifth session and that the formal election would take place at the start of the 25th session next year.

In the meantime, the Chair of the 24th session will continue in the interim to serve as Chair to ensure the continuity of the intersessional work of the Commission and that of the Bureau.
