Dear all,

First of all, I would like to thank all of you for your settled or
situational support. I would like to come back to what it's mean for me and
to everybody in EURALO/ALAC/ICANN.

Second, I do not see any sense in contiunting of this electoral process.

But I have some questions, for which I hope to receive more than one (as
usual) answers. Here they are:

1.  What is the difference between EURALO Secretariat Election in 2011 (5
voices against 4) and EURALO Secretariat election 2013 (11 voices against


2. Whose responsibility is to ensure transparency and accountability of any
selection and election process?

3. Whose responsibility is to keep an order of selection process (for
example, Board selection after EURALO officers elections means that EURALO
officers are automatically the members of the Board. If the results of the
first election have been changed, how it has to influence on the results of
another one?)

4. If discussion of candidates is held in close way, how can they ensure,
that there was no false or libel information shared behind their backs?

5. What is the responsibility of officers for defamation or for having some
hidden conflict of interests in the process of selection/election?

Best regards,
