Dear Aziz and all,

May I add a paragraph to the accountability part of our statement before the last bullet point in the following mannar:

•	All the accountability mechanisms should avoid leading to courts as much as possible. In fact, we do not accept that ICANN affairs be managed by courts in whatever jurisdiction. ICANN is an example of a triving multistakeholder community and we should endeavor to protect that as much as possible.

Added paragraph: 

               •	The final aim of the CCWG work is to enhance the Accountability to the community. The membership model would enhance the   
                        accountability of the board to the ICANN members, but how we can ensure that the ICANN members will be accountable to the   
                        community???? With the membership model, we move the accountability issue from the board to the members, but we do not solve 

•	The community group that will act on behalf of the respective community stakeholders to exercise the powers mentioned in the report should be as inclusive as possible. We prefer equal footing for all SOs and ACs, but can live with the composition proposed in the report. 

Finally, we reiterate our support to the CWG-Stewardship and the CCWG-Accountability groups and appreciate the progress made so far. However, we think that their proposals need further work to find the right multi-stakeholder solution for the stewardship transition and the best ways to empower the community using the right means and avoiding ICANN the risk of being weakened or loose its independence, its inclusiveness and its multi-stakeholder nature.
