Not 100% sure if I caught it correctly but it was mentioned that Tunisia was going to put itself forward next year ...... but for what? The WHC????
Tanzania is offering to host (Where?? Arusha is its normal "Conference" site). BUT -it has heard that Azerbaijan had also submitted - "immediately after". It had felt etc etc that it was important that the WHC be held a second time in Africa (after RSA) ............Tanzania clearly wants it to be known that it submitted FIRST!!!
So -the 2 countries have been asked to sit together under Brazil as chair to sort it out!!.
Tanzania has decided to withdraw in the spirit of Consensus - So - BAKU
it is to be!!! (well if they can host the Eurovision Song contest They can manage the WHC ok!)
Tunisia points out that It, Morocco AND Egypt have also hosted the WHC - "and WE are also from Africa"!! (dig...dig!)
Everyone is promising to "prioritise" Africa at the 43rd WHC " ....... "Priority AFRICA!!" is to be the Theme.
Azerbaijan lists its credentials for holding such a conference - but doesn't mention Eurovision in its "CV"!!
Burkina Faso gets a job of Vice Chair. Not really anything special for Africa as there are multiple "Vice Chairs" for each region so Indonesia, Tunisia, Norway and are also given this illustrious job with Brazil continuing for Latin America). - the Minister of Culture of Azerbaijan is of course to be "Chair"
China nominates an Australian as Rapporteur
Azerbaijan ALREADY has a video ready to show to this WHC - "Welcome to the 43rd Committee
"!!!! It would have been a shame if it hadn't got the job!! "Baku is undoubtedly one of the most beautiful cities in the World" -and it DOES mention Eurovision!
They discuss next WHC agenda - As well as "Nomination Process" there is to be an Item on "Priority Africa" but where in the agenda?? Tunisia points out that most of the members of the Convention GO HOME after discussion of "New Inscriptions" - Better to put such items at the beginning rather than at the end!! It is important that everyone is present to hear such items discussed. Uganda says - move the New Inscriptions to the end in order to ensure a "full house"! Reply is that Items can be moved around whatever their "number".
