Wolfgang thanks for pointing out that the Kurth is in the running for  
the position of Secretary General of the ITU. If i'm not mistaken,  
there is also a swiss candidate.

The first thing that comes to mind is how close (or not) the position  
is to the one the EU will be putting forward. I know there was  
considerable tension between different EU states in the final WSIS  
negotiations . Do those tensions still exist? What does Austria say?  
What's the position of the country that holds the presidency after  

Canada, New Zealand, Uruguay and Singapore  would be a key counties   
to consult.
