The NARALO Operating Principles call for the NARALO Chair to cast a
vote (a 2nd vote if he/she is a voting representative) in order to
break a tie in a NARALO ALAC Member election
Since in this case the Chair is one of the candidates, that would not
be appropriate. I have proposed that in the case of a tie, we use
Section 19 of the Operating Procedures instead, the procedure
designed to break a tie for the Chair or Secretariat. In essence this
would mean the three NARALO ALAC Members break the tie.
Both candidates have agreed to this procedure.
Clearly we need a revision to fix the problem in the future, but that
is not today's task.
