Comments: Most of the IPU's nominators nominated either the Inter-Parliamentary Union or the Inter-Parliamentary Bureau or both. Christian Lous Lange, secretary of the Norwegian Nobel Committee, rearded the Union and the Bureau as one candidate; the Bureau was the executive body of the Union. The nominators wished to to reward the IPU and its Bureau with a Nobel Peace Prize for its accomplishments so far and to provide the IPU with means to develop the organization and to guarantee the continued existence of the IPU.
