[EURO-Discuss] Voting procedure for ALAC seats

As far as I understood and have followed the discussions, no one has 
explicitly expressed who would be elected !
If the discussions continue we will never finalize the selection of our 
representatives in ALAC in Puerto Rico.

I'm afraid that, in the near future, we will not be able to finalize 
priorities in regards the requirements and comments received from the 
community we want to represent. May I gently ask again to please let us 
go for voting. Whatever method is used, there will always be some of us 
not being happy with the outcome. It looks as if, after the elections, 
we will have some other discussions and debates on the outcome, which 
would really damage the image of EURALO. Having to talk to governmental 
bodies on how we are progressing in EURALO I have bloss on my face and 
prefer to hide myself if I would have to explain the  *combat* in our setup.

I know I'm going to have pro's and contra's, but please this does not 
help the individual, issue of already long discussions in Lisbon and 
later on ...

May I suggest we just send a message, each of us ALSes who signed to 
MoU, to Nick confirming we want to progress with the proposal as 
expressed clearly by Nick ?

Thanks for helping me (and us) in reading less mails !

Best regards

Rudi Vansnick
