Granting appropriate powers to the General Secretariat would support accelerated implementation of resolutions – Ihsanoglu

The Secretary General of the Organisation of Islamic Cooperation (OIC), Professor Ekmeleddin Ihsanoglu, stated that the comprehensive reform process of the OIC has produced a new charter for the Organisation to modernize principles, rules and objectives.

Speaking at the meeting of the Intergovernmental Group of Experts which started its work at the OIC General Secretariat in Jeddah on 23 April 2012, the Secretary General noted that the meeting was very significant, being held in the context of the comprehensive reform process adopted in the Ten - Year Programme of Action in 2005 which sought to raise the performance of the OIC in all its areas of work. He equally commended the importance of the proposals made by Member States on updating and reviewing the Rules of Procedure to be coordinated with series of reforms that have touched many of the General Secretariat’s activities.

Ihsanoglu pointed out that the General Secretariat had prepared a draft Rules of Procedure for meetings of the Council of Foreign Ministers with inspirations derived from Member States’ proposals and the practices of international organizations.

The Secretary General alluded to recent developments in some OIC Member States which produced radical changes in the direction of good governance. Meanwhile Ihsanoglu stressed that the success of the General Secretariat in any organisation in discharging its duties depends on that secretariat possessing powers commensurate with the duties and assignments expected of it as the executive organ of the organisation. He added that granting the OIC General Secretariat appropriate powers is support for good and accelerated implementation of OIC resolutions.
