[EURO-Discuss] Legal situation with respect to ALAC candidatures

Good morning,
having been on ICANN'n nomcom twice, I can confirm that several board 
members didn't meet the requirements you find necessary for an ALAC 
seat. The nomcom has appointed people who were plain and simple newbies. 
  From what I know, nobody has ever complained about this fact.
Now I wonder if the selection criteria for ALAC should be more rigorous 
than for the board and if so  why?
