The Annual General Meeting (AGM) of the World Federation of Neurology (WFN) and Council of Delegates meeting took place on Tuesday 25th October, 2022.

As in previous 2 elections—2020 and 2021—voting took place through remote online ballot. This method of voting enables all member societies to vote in the elections, regardless of whether or not they are able to attend the Council of Delegates meeting, but also reduces the impact that adverse conditions, such as differences in time zone or difficulties caused by Covid restricted travel, may have to sound decision-making when voting.

Voting was carried out in advance of the WFN Annual General Meeting (AGM) of the Council of Delegates (CoD) and the election results announced at the CoD meeting.
