Editorial Note

A United Nations Commissioner in Eritrea, Eduardo Anze Matienzo of Bolivia, was elected by the United Nations General Assembly in December 1950 and given the task of drafting a Constitution for Eritrea in consultation with the groups concerned—the Government of Ethiopia, the inhabitants of Eritrea, and local officials of the Administering Authority, the United Kingdom. The Commissioner spent most of the year in Eritrea and submitted a progress report, dated November 16, 1951, to the sixth session of the General Assembly. Documentation on United Nations actions on Eritrea during the sixth session of the General Assembly is in Yearbook of the United Nations, 1951.
