The goal here is to select a board member, not a representative of the region. Actually, the origin of the candidates should not be a factor to have in mind when voting. 

However, I am still convinced that the game of musical chairs is something to be avoided. This is perhaps an ICANN classic. Yet, this is also why ICANN is often critisized outside.  
Given that the 3 candidates are or were ALAC members, that one on the petition list was a former GNSO chair and another is an outgoing board member, I support option B.

The EURALO Board is therefore discussing to take action and to petition on behalf of her -- and perhaps other suitable candidates from Europe who were not considered neither.
