Concerning the recent discussion about the nomination received from Nimrol K
Agarwal of Fouad Bajwa for the position of APRALO representative to the
ALAC, I have inquired with staff and confirmed that the time-stamp of the
nomination email was 7:33am PDT on September 6, which corresponds to 14:33
UTC on 6 September (see:
The APRALO selection schedule states: “Nominations shall be accepted for one
week after the Secretariat calls for nominations up to 6-September-2011.”
Charles to state that he has defined “up to” to mean “up to and including”
the 6thof September. Therefore, Nirmol’s nomination of Fouad is valid.
I have received on Sep 7 an email from Fouad where he gave a clear and
concise acceptance of this nomination.
Therefore, I will call a vote for the available APRALO ALAC representative
to begin ASAP. After consulting with staff, the vote will start on Sep 9 at
23:59 UTC and end on Sep 16 23:59 UTC. Voters will be able to vote for
either of the two candidates: Salanieta Tamanikaiwaimaro or Fouad Bajwa.
Staff will contact the two candidates to request they send a candidate
statement of between 150-200 words. These statements will be posted on the
2011 At-Large Elections Wiki page (see:
The successful candidate will be granted travel support to the ICANN Meeting
scheduled to take place in Dakar 23-28 October. As both candidates will
require visas, staff will begin the visa process for both candidates ASAP
given the time constraints.
Thank you for your attention!
