Dear colleagues,

there is one remark, I would like to make.

I fully agree that we should go for diversity - more, I'd like to  
stress it. In my opinion, the candidature of Veronica Cretu does not  
contradict diversity, but enhances it, as she represents groups not  
represented by the other candidate for ALAC. The more formal aspect  
of ALS-membership seems a less important point to me in this case.

I appreciate that the open questions to the candidature are clarified
