Article 49 of the EPO Service Regulations says that promotion shall be"by selection". What that implies is "that the president will look at the merits of each candidate for promotion, and that he will set all the candidates against each other and choose as many as the number of vacancies allows." In the instant case the Tribunal holds that there is no evidence to suggest that the President went beyond the bounds of his discretion as set in Article 49.
