At the Extraordinary IOC Session in Lausanne 3-4 July 2013, the six candidates for the post as the next IOC president are presenting their election manifestos at a meeting closed for the press.
German investigative journalist Jens Weinreich is present in Lausanne and, as probably the only place online, you can now read all six manifestos on
his blog where he has made them available.
Richard Carrión’s election manifesto
Ser Miang Ng’s election manifesto
Thomas Bach’s election manifesto
Ching-Kou Wo’s election manifesto
Denis Oswald’s election manifesto
Sergey Bubka’s election manifesto
Apart from getting the presentations from the presidential candidates, the IOC members are gathered in Lausanne to vote on the 2018 Youth Olympic host city and to see presentations from the bidding cities for the 2020 Summer Games.
