Former England captain Bill Beaumont is set to be the chairman of the sport’s governing body, World Rugby.
The 64-year-old RFU chairman, a former British and Irish Lions captain, is the only nominee to succeed Frenchman Bernard Lapasset.
Former Argentina international Agustin Pichot is the only candidate to replace Oregan Hoskins as vice-chairman.
The elections will be held in Dublin on 11 May, with a simple majority required to be elected for a four-year term.
Lapasset is standing down to lead Paris’s bid to win the right to host the 2024 Olympic Games.
