The complainant requests the cancellation of procedures by which a candidate for the material post was selected and appointed. "The organization has acknowledged - and rightly so - that the procedures were irregular. Thus, insofar as the complainant wishes to have them cancelled, her complaint no longer has any foundation. She has now to co-operate fully with the organization in the review of the [...] classification of her post."
