Elections on Tuesday to fill two vacancies on the 15-member IOC Executive Board will be contested by a total of four candidates, it was announced on Monday at the 125th IOC Session in Buenos Aires, Argentina.

Anita L. DeFrantz, HRH Prince Tunku Imran and Richard W. Pound  will vie to succeed John Coates, who himself will seek the Vice-Presidency slot left vacant by Ser Miang Ng, whose back-to-back four-year terms come to an end tomorrow.

Both elections are scheduled for Tuesday afternoon, only a few hours after the announcement of the new IOC President, which is scheduled for 12.30 p.m. local time and will be broadcast live on www.olympic.org.

The full IOC membership heard reports today, the third of four days of meetings, from IOC commissions and the administration, and also received a written report outlining the IOC’s activities during the past four years.
