DHAKA, JANUARY 8, 2017 – U.S. Embassy Dhaka will host its ninth Road to the White House Facebook chat on January 10 about the Peaceful Transition of Power. Starting on May 10 and running through the presidential inauguration in January 2017, the Embassy has hosted a U.S. expert each month who will conduct a one-hour Facebook chat on a specific election-related topic. This is the final event in the series and will focus on the U.S. tradition of power peacefully changing hands, even after hotly-contested elections.

Join us for our January 10 election chat on Peaceful Transition of Power at 7 p.m. The chat will feature Paul L. Posner, director of the graduate Public Administration program at George Mason University. Dr. Posner will discuss how public officials prepare for and implement the hand-over of the U.S. government to newly-elected leaders.

Dr. Posner leads the University’s Center on the Public Service and his most recent book, Pathways to Power, caps years of work on national policymaking processes. He previously served as director of Federal budget issues with the United States Accountability Office and is the President of the American Society for Public Administration.

Please include your questions in the comments section of the Road to the White House post that will be added to the Embassy’s Facebook page on December 26. For further information and updates, please check our U.S. Embassy Dhaka Facebook page: facebook.com/bangladesh.usembassy/
