E.O. 12958: N/A
TAGS: PREL PHUM CI
SUBJECT: DIPLOMATIC NOTE ANNOUNCES CHILEAN CANDIDATE FOR PRESIDENT
OF THE INTER-AMERICAN COMMISSION OF WOMEN


1. On February 20, Post received Diplomatic Note number 38 dated
February 4, from the Ministry of Foreign Relations announcing
Chile's candidate for President of the Inter-American Commission of
Women. Paragraph 2 contains Post's informal translation of
diplomatic note 38.

2. The Ministry of Foreign Relations - Multilateral Policy
Directorate - presents its compliments to the Embassy of the United
States of America, and has the honor to inform the Embassy that the
Government of Chile has decided to present the candidacy of Minister
Director of the National Service for Women (SERNAM), Mrs. Laura
Albornoz, for the Presidency of the Inter-American Commission of
Women for the period 2009 - 2010. The elections will be held during
the XXXIV Assembly of Commission Delegates in November 2008.

This initiative reflects the commitment of the Government of
President Michelle Bachelet, at the global as well as the regional
level, with the promotion of gender equality and women's rights,
which, in the Government of Chile, finds its concrete expression in
the existence of the Ministry of National Service for Women, the
State Secretariat charged with implementing government policies
towards this end. Within this framework and clearly aware of its
commitments, the Government of Chile deems it coherent and opportune
to present the candidacy for the presidency of said Commission, of
the very person who today is the maximum authority of that
Ministry.

Minister Laura Albornoz also possesses an important career in public
service, solid legal training and background, and a recognized
academic career linked especially to the promotion and protection of
human rights.

Chile is especially interested in continuing to work and share
experiences on those issues related to the promotion of women's
rights, equity, and gender equality. In the framework of the
relations of friendship and cooperation that unite our two
countries, the Government of Chile solicits the valuable support of
the Government of the United States of America for this candidacy.
Minister Albornoz's curriculum vitae and a document regarding her
candidacy are attached.

The Ministry of Foreign Relations - Directorate of Multilateral
Policy - appreciates consideration of this request and avails itself
of this opportunity to renew to the Embassy of the United States of
America the assurances of its highest and most distinguished
consideration.

Santiago, February 4, 2008

to the Department if necessary.
