All decisions of the World Council will come into force when they have been adopted by a two-thirds majority vote. Within the terms of reference set by the World Council, the executive committee of the Council will be able to act in response to regional or global crises without having to wait for a vote.
This Charter is intended to provide a broad framework for the establishment and functioning of the World Council. As the functioning and the role of the World Council evolve over time, this Charter may be suitably altered or amended. Any alteration to the present Charter must be recommended by a two-thirds and similarly ratified.
During each meeting of the Council, a decision will be made on the timing and location of the next meeting. The Secretariat will be responsible for organizing the logistics of each meeting, working with local co-hosts.
