The next International Criminal Court Prosecutor will be elected by States Parties to the Rome Statute in December 2020. The States Parties have mandated the Committee on the Election of the Prosecutor to vet applicants and issue a shortlist of three to six of the most highly qualified candidate.

Those who commit, condone, or ignore sexual harassment in and outside the workplace should be excluded from the election.
