Dear All,

I decided to retire  my self nomination for the "Ex-Com" , I will soon move
to the GAC to represente my country,

I think Dave will be happy, because he thinks that speak more fluent
English, must be a reason to be on the Ex-Com, not necessary to have more
time to know more ALAC

>  Dear All,
> With regards to the selection of the 5th member of the Executive Committee
> (ExCom), please note that according to a motion on the formalization of the
> ALAC Executive Committee, which was adopted during the 25 November 2008 ALAC
> Meeting, “the ALAC shall nominate and elect an ALAC member from the as-yet
> un-represented ICANN region to the fifth Executive Committee position” (see
> complete text below).
> Therefore, based on this ALAC-agreed process and the fact that AFRALO has
> not yet confirmed a single regional preference for the 5th member of the
> ExCom, the ALAC will be appointing this person from the nominations put
> forward as of today, 9 November (i.e., Hawa Diakite and Dave Kissoondoyal)
> during the ALAC meeting of 24 November (15:00 – 16:30 UTC).
> As requested by Cheryl Langdon-Orr, ALAC Chair, both Hawa and Dave are
> asked to participate in the ALAC meeting as well as in the ExCom meeting
> that will immediately follow the ALAC meeting on 24 November between
> 16:30-17:30 UTC. Both participants are requested to join the EN channel for
> at least a portion of the ALAC call.  Please note that there is no
> interpretation on the ExCom calls.
> Complete text of selection of 5th ExCom member:
> 2nd Motion. Presented by A Greenberg, seconded by A Peake
> Whereas last year's de facto Executive Committee included Officers
> from four or the five ICANN regions;
> Whereas this present year's Officers represent four of the five ICANN
> regions;
> Whereas in keeping with ALAC and ICANN principles, it is felt that
> there is a benefit in all five regions participating in an Executive
> Committee;
> Therefore I move that:
> 1. The ALAC expand the Executive Committee to five people. The Executive
> Committee shall be composed of the four ALAC Officers and one additional
> ALAC member.
> 2. The ALAC redefine the two positions of Vice-Chair and the position of
> Rapporteur, and the associated voting processes to ensure that the Chair,
> the two Vice-Chairs, and the Rapporteur all represent different ICANN
> regions, the detailed Rules of Procedures to be approved prior to the 2009
> Officer elections;
> 3. Following the election of the four officers, the ALAC shall nominate and
> elect an ALAC member from the as-yet un-represented ICANN region to the
> fifth Executive Committee position.
> Against: B Brendler, C Aguirre
> Abstention: none
> In favour: C Langdon-Orr, V Vivekandan, N Thu Hue, F Seye Sylla, M El
> Bashir, S Bachollet, A Greenberg, P Vande Walle, A Peake
> Regards,
> Nick Ashton-Hart, Heidi Ullrich, Matthias Langenegger, Gisella Gruber-White
