Judgment No. 884
THE COMPLAINT IS DISMISSED.
The complainant seeks to have his professional experience reckoned anew. He contends that new guidelines supersede the rule precluding the reckoning of experience gained before the age of twenty-five. The Tribunal holds that, although replacement of the rule has been proposed, "until a decision has been taken by the competent authority the 25-year rule remains in force."

"An official has no right to promotion simply because he has the minimum seniority required for it. Seniority is not the only criterion for promotion and the President has discretion in the matter."
