TBILISI, July 5. /TASS/. Austrian parliamentarian Christine Muttonen was elected new President of the OSCE Parliamentary Assembly (PA) on Tuesday at its 25th annual session in Tbilisi.
Two OSCE PA vice presidents - Georgia’s Gigi (George) Tsereteli and France’s Alain Neri - were other candidates for OSCE PA president.
Two election rounds were held, as no candidate secured the required majority of votes, with 85 parliamentarians voting for Tsereteli, 91 - for Muttonen and 25 - for Neri.
Former OSCE PA President Ilkka Kanerva was elected twice - on July 2, 2014 and on July 9, 2015. His term of office expired in early July.
