The elections of the Members making up the WDSF Presidium for the period 2013 to 2017 were among the last items on the agenda.

Delegates representing 62 WDSF Member Bodies - directly or through proxies - were able to cast their votes for 14 candidates of whom 10 held office on the previous Presidium already.
