Tijani Ben Jemaa, Chair of the Board Member Selection Process Committee (BMSPC) 2014, has asked that a TIE BREAKING VOTE be held to select the candidate to run against Rinalia Abdul Rahim for the Board Director (Seat #15) selected by the ALAC/At-Large for 2015-2017 (to take their seat at the 2014 AGM).
No candidate in VOTE ROUND 2 received more than 50% of the votes.
The next step will be to hold a vote to break the tie between Sébastien Bachollet and Alan Greenberg. The winner of this tie-breaking vote will run against Rinalia Abdul Rahim.
Question: Who do you support to run against Rinalia Abdul Rahim for the Board Director (Seat #15) selected by the ALAC/At-Large for 2015-2017? Please select one candidate between the two tied candidates below (listed in alphabetical order of the family name):
