Morocco Re-elected to International Narcotics Control Board Presidency

Morocco was re-elected, on Wednesday, to the presidency of the International Narcotics Control Board (INCB) by the members of this body, which is holding its 140th session on May 20-31 in Vienna. Morocco's re-election, in the person of Professor Jallal Toufiq, is further recognition of its substantial contribution to the international debate on the implementation of the international drug control conventions. It is also a recognition of the Kingdom's constant advocacy of the imperative of strengthening sub-regional, regional and international cooperation, as well as its recognized actions and sustained efforts as part of international efforts in the fight against this global scourge. Ten of the members are elected from a list of people nominated by governments. The other three members are elected from a list of persons nominated by the World Health Organization (WHO) for their experience in medicine, pharmacology or pharmacy.
