Many current and European politicians addressed the Norwegian Nobel Committee in 2022 with the nomination of Volodymyr Zelenskyy for the Nobel Peace Prize in Ukraine, which is why the nomination procedure has been extended until 31 March.
“We therefore humbly call on the Commission to consider extending and reopening the Nobel Peace Prize nomination procedure until 31 March 2022 to allow President Zelensky and the Ukrainian people to be nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize,” the statement said on 11 March.
Politicians have also called on the commission to “reopen and reconsider the 2022 Nobel Peace Prize nomination procedure,” the statement said.
This year’s Nobel Prize nomination will take place from 3 to 10 October.
251 people and 92 organizations presented the 2022 Nobel Peace Prize.
