9.The Conference at its Twenty-eighth Session had adopted Resolution 9/95 on 31 October 1995, whereby the Committee on Food Aid Policies and Programmes was reconstituted as the Executive Board of the World Food Programme.10. The Council was therefore required to elect 18 members in accordance with the distribution and terms of office prescribed in operative paragraph 4 of Conference Resolution 9/95. 11. The Council elected the following Member Nations:
|A||1996, 1997, 1998||Algeria, Nigeria|
|B||1996, 1997, 1998||China|
|C||1996, 1997, 1998||Cuba *|
|C||1996, 1997||El Salvador, Haiti|
|** D||1996, 1997, 1998||Germany, Canada|
|** D||1996, 1997||Netherlands, United States of America|
|** D||1996||Australia, France|
*This seat rotates between the States included in List C (1996-98) and List B (1999-2001)
**For comments by List D members elected to the WFP Executive Board, please see p.5 of CL 110/PV/3.
12.Since the proposals had not yet been considered by the Committee on Food Aid Policies and Programmes (CFA), and the Council did not have the substantive proposals before it, the Council decided that it was premature for it to take any action on this matter, beyond noting the urgency of the need for the CFA to adopt the necessary measures to improve the resourcing and long-term financing of the Programme.
